Om Malik at GigaOm:

…Yahoo’s product lineup sort of blows. There isn’t a single product they make that I want to use.

A pretty scathing critique of the Marissa Mayer-lead Yahoo, and one I generally agree with.

My exception to Om is Tumblr, which I use for my personal blog. It may be their one saving grace in getting back advertising revenue they’ve ceded to Facebook, but man, they’re going to run a dangerous line in getting it. I have no idea how you could integrate meaningful amounts of advertising into Tumblr without pissing off most of the userbase.

I’m sure Yahoo is working on it, though.
