Yahoo! / D1g.com scandal – Jordanian Startup gets bought on the inside

05Aug09

D1g Yahoo! ScamThis time last week, news circulated that Yahoo! bought the active Jordanian start-up Maktoub, which gave hope that even abroad, an interest in the Arab world’s web/social networking market service got some interest by some of the big boys of the (Silicon) Valley.

This week, among the entrepreneurs and software developing community in Lebanon, rumours spread like feathers in the wind that Yahoo! would be buying a Middle Eastern start-up called D1g (D1g.com) which just received its first round of funding. The Jordanian based start-up was new to most ears, and became intrigued on what fancied Yahoo! in the take over.

It sufficed to make one search on Google for D1G and Yahoo! to read about some scandal. Scandal? Easy enough to get curious, but this blogger pointed out…

The post is dated since 2007, that’s 3 years down the road where Yahoo! is in financial trouble. Fishy eh?
