OK. I get that it’s an arch statement. Yahoo leads off its release about its $1 billion acquisition of Tumblr with the subhead, “Promises not to screw it up.” And given that Yahoo now is led by someone who for years subscribed to the corporate slogan, “Don’t be evil,” it makes sense.
However, I can’t get over the feeling that, if you and I had a billion dollars to spend, we’d probably aim a little higher. 🙂
