So it's official...Yahoo! is acquiring Xoopit and we're psyched to bring our technology and our people to participate in building a next generation webmail system with the Yahoo! Mail team. When we started Xoopit, we had a vision of making email more useful, social, and fun. To accomplish our goals, we brought together an absolutely outstanding group of people from our wicked engineering team to our sagacious investors to create a company that we love dearly, and products that we wanted to see in the world. We, as founders of Xoopit, want to thank the rest of the Xoopit team for helping craft our vision into an ongoing reality. We've been honored to work with first-class engineers and designers, who have put as much heart into our small company as they have into our huge set of product offerings. Moreover, we want to thank them for making life at Xoopit in our beloved San Francisco Mission the most unique, creative, and productive work experience that we've been involved in.
The Xoopit team today sees this acquisition as an exceptional path for us in achieving our vision. Over the last few months, we have left every conversation with the Yahoo! team thinking that together we can wow the world. We now get to unleash our ideas on the future of email to a huge global user base. To the Yahoo! Mail product & engineering VPs, John Kremer and Jason Titus: we love your commitment to being the best mail operation on the consumer web and look forward to becoming a part of your organization and completely rocking the house.
What does this mean for our many users? We acknowledge you all as the backbone of our service, giving our work meaning and giving us constant feedback over the last couple years. If you're already using My Photos in Yahoo! Mail, you'll see the product continue to improve and become more integrated into your Yahoo! Mail experience. If you're a Xoopit for Gmail user, that service will remain active for the time being.
