Last week, Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer went on stage at CES and announced an acquisition: a startup called Aviate.
She said Aviate “organise[s] the apps on your phone’s home screen according to its best guess at what you need to see right now.”
We have a pretty good idea how much Yahoo paid: $US75 million to $US80 million.
That’s from a single source, so take this information with a grain of salt.
However, TechCrunch also reported Yahoo bought Aviate for about $US80 million.
At that price, this is a very smart deal for Mayer.
