Shopping for Cool: Yahoo! Board Reportedly Set to Weigh $1.1B Tumblr Deal - TIME



Lucas Jackson / REUTERS

President and CEO of Yahoo, Marissa Mayer, arrives for the Time 100 gala celebrating the magazine's naming of the 100 most influential people in the world for the past year, in New York, April 23, 2013.

Internet icon Yahoo! is in talks to buy New York-based social blogging platform Tumblr for as much as $1 billion, according to multiple reports. At that price, Tumblr would be pretty expensive, given that it reportedly only booked $13 million in revenue last year, but the deal could still make sense for Yahoo! That's because�Tumblr is extremely popular with the 18-to-24 year-old-set, precisely the demographic CEO Marissa Mayer is targeting as she attempts to turn the purple-hued Internet pioneer around following a multi-year slump.

Tumblr has long been considered a major prize, so it's no surprise that Yahoo! isn't the only one interested in the company. Tumblr has also reportedly held talks with both Facebook and Microsoft, according to Forbes. Of course, Tumblr CEO David Karp may decide to hold out '� he's reportedly raising a new venture capital round that values the company at $1 billion. Or he may opt for a 'strategic investment,' in which Yahoo! or some other big company invests in Tumblr, which would then remain independent. Tumblr has already raised $125 million at an $800 million valuation.

What Tumblr lacks in revenue, it makes up in 'coolness.' The site has become a major destination for young urbanites to post photos, snarky comments, and other ephemera, and then share that content with others. Tumblr is also a very large and fast growing community. It had�worldwide traffic of 117 million visitors in April, according to comScore data cited by AllThingsD. Tumblr claims it hosts 107.9 million blogs that have generated 50.7 billion posts.

Taken together, Tumblr's brand appeal and growth make it an attractive target, especially for Yahoo! CEO Mayer.�'If you could pick a company that fits in with what Marissa Mayer has demonstrated in her career '� aesthetics, software, technology, and fast-growing '� you could not land on a better choice,' one source told AllThingsD.

A Yahoo! spokesperson said the company doesn't comment on 'rumors and speculation,' and a Tumblr spokesperson did not immediately return a request for comment.

(MORE:�Can Google Star Marissa Mayer Save Yahoo!?)

Another reason Tumblr could be attractive to Yahoo! is the frequency with which its users post on the site.�Mayer wants to incorporate Yahoo!'s products '� including search, email, and its popular homepage '� into the 'daily habits' of its users, in an echo of the 'toothbrush' philosophy espoused by her former boss, Google CEO Larry Page. Yahoo! currently has massive traffic '� over 700 million users worldwide '� but what it doesn't have is a social platform. Tumblr could fix that.

Mayer has made no secret that she's on the lookout for acquisitions. And with over $4 billion in cash, she certainly has the resources to execute a blockbuster deal. In recent months, Yahoo! has reportedly been kicking the tires at Foursquare, Path, Pinterest, and Hulu, according to TechCrunch. 'Literally they talk to everyone,' one source told the tech website.

Perhaps more than anything else, buying Tumblr would generate the sort of excitement that Yahoo! needs as it seeks to boost employee morale and position itself as a cool place to work amid an intensely competitive job market for engineers and programmers. Mayer has a long road ahead to complete the Yahoo! turn-around she envisions, but Wall Street likes what it has seen so far. Since assuming command of Yahoo! last July, the company's stock price has soared by 70%.

Victim's family testifies in Jodi Arias case - Fox News



  • May 15, 2013: Tanisha Sorenso turns away as autopsy photos of her brother Travis Alexander are displayed during the sentencing phase of the Jodi Arias murder trial at Maricopa County Superior Court in Phoenix.AP/The Arizona Republic Pool

PHOENIX '� �The jury deciding the fate of convicted murderer Jodi Arias heard dramatic and emotional testimony Thursday from the family of the man she killed as they described how their lives were ripped apart by his death.

Siblings of Travis Alexander broke down in tears as they made an impassioned plea to jurors that Arias be executed for stabbing him to death in 2008.

Steven Alexander said he suffered ulcers, went on antidepressants, was separated from his wife and cannot sleep because of the horrible dreams.

"I don't want these nightmares anymore," Steven Alexander told the jury, at times almost sneering with anger as he recalled what happened to his beloved brother. "I don't want to have to see my brother's murderer anymore."

The testimony came as the trial's penalty phase opened in a Phoenix courtroom, with attorneys giving arguments on whether Arias should get a life sentence or be executed. The same jury convicted Arias of first-degree murder last week.

The prosecutor displayed family portraits as the siblings spoke, prompting Arias to break down in tears herself.

Sister Samantha Alexander became emotional as she described how their grandmother, who raised the victim, saw her health fail after the killing and died around the time of jury selection.

"Travis was the glue in our family," Samantha Alexander said. She also recalled her brother's charisma, sense of humor, insight and "huge smile."

"I thought my brother was bulletproof," Steven Alexander said. "I thought he was stronger than anyone. He couldn't be cut down or knocked down."

Meanwhile, defense lawyer Kirk Nurmi said Arias will testify as he listed several factors that the jury can consider in deciding to grant mercy, including her age, troubled upbringing, lack of criminal history before the killing, and even her skills as a talented artist.

Prosecutor Juan Martinez went through each factor and sought to turn the attention to the gruesome killing, asking what her age, background and art skills have to do with what happened the day Travis Alexander was stabbed nearly 30 times.

Other witnesses in the penalty phase will include Arias' friends and an ex-boyfriend who lived with her for several years in California.

Arias' attorneys earlier asked to step down from the case, but a judge denied the request.

Details about the motion were sealed, but legal experts said Arias complicated efforts for her defense when she gave an interview to Fox affiliate KSAZ minutes after her conviction, saying she preferred death over life in prison.

"I believe death is the ultimate freedom, and I'd rather have my freedom as soon as I can get it," Arias said.

During a closed-door meeting with the judge on Tuesday, Nurmi and Jennifer Willmott sought permission to withdraw from the case, according to court minutes released Thursday.

Los Angeles-area criminal defense lawyer Mark Geragos said Arias' attorneys have a conflict of interest with their efforts to keep their client off death row and Arias' assertion that she'd rather die for her crime.

"It's not highly unusual," he said. "There are cases where defendants make decisions that they're better off on death row, but that puts the lawyer in a conflicted position. You've got a duty as a lawyer to bring the conflict of interest to the courts and disclose it."

Added Phoenix criminal defense lawyer Julio Laboy: "It would be something I would do in my major felony cases if I found that a client was actually working against me and not working with her defense."

Arias cannot choose the death penalty. It's up to the jury to determine a sentence.

On Wednesday, the panel took less than three hours to determine that Arias should be eligible for death in the killing of her one-time lover after prosecutors proved the murder was especially cruel.

Arias, 32, acknowledged killing Travis Alexander at his suburban Phoenix home after a day of sex. She initially denied any involvement then later blamed the attack on masked intruders. Two years after her arrest, she settled on self-defense.

The victim suffered nearly 30 knife wounds in what prosecutors described as an attack fueled by jealous rage after Alexander wanted to end his affair with Arias and prepared to take a trip to Mexico with another woman.
