Yahoo! to launch Bloglines style RSS service?

Techchruch reports that Yahoo has acquired the assets of RSS service SearchFox, which announced recently that it would be shutting down later in January.

SearchFox provides a very similar style of RSS aggregation/ reading as does Bloglines, and although I didn’t become a regular user of the service it was certainly one of the closest competitors in terms of Bloglines-likeness of the many competing services out there I’ve used.

If proven true, Yahoo! could only be doing one thing with these assets: and that’s launching a fully fledged competitor to Bloglines (My Yahoo! doesn’t count, its a totally different sort of RSS service in my books).
