Yahoo Vacs Up Yet Another Startup — Rondee, a Conference Calling Service — And Shuts It Down

Yahoo bought its second company in one day, purchasing enterprise conference call service Rondee after it announced the acquisition of GhostBird Software, an Apple iOS photo app creator, for its Flickr team earlier today. Rondee’s staff will join Yahoo’s Small Business unit, which the company had once considered shutting down. (Every Yahoo division, please line up for your gift of a tiny startup from CEO Marissa Mayer!) According to a post on Rondee’s website, it will start the shutdown of the service and the transfer of its clients to InstantConference by the end of July. Palo Alto, Calif.-based Rondee was founded in 2006. (For anyone who gets this one — perhaps we in the media are not smart enough, as Yahoo execs are fond of saying these days — please send me a note.)
