Yahoo Acquires Astrid Task Management App
The app maker is claiming that things will remain the same for the next 90 days, but it's unlikely that the service will remain alive beyond that. Instead, Yahoo is apt to roll its services into Yahoo mobile products. Around four million people currently use Astrid, but it's about to be introduced to even more. In a nutshell, Astrid is a task management app, so it's unclear what part of Yahoo's mobile strategy this taps into. We suspect we'll find out soon enough, though.
