I came across this amazing KaitoXMiku (Vocaloid) picture today on pixiv.

Will this be the new Tumblr?

Will it turn out like this?
I found this image on Google+ a few minutes ago and I just cracked up laughing. Will this actually be the result of the Yahoo-Tumblr acquisition? I don't use Tumblr so I'm not too affected by the news.

Yahoo Is Planning to Buy Tumblr for $1.1 Billion

The board of Yahoo, the faded Web pioneer, agreed on Sunday to buy the popular blogging service Tumblr for about $1.1 billion in cash, people with direct knowledge of the matter said, a signal of how the company plans to reposition itself as the technology industry makes a headlong rush into social media.

The announcement doesn't surprise me really as I don't use either services. But if this is a way for Yahoo to gain back some userbase and revenue then by all means go for it. Seeing that Yahoo is still alive and around means it is still capable of holding out against the big guys until the very end.
