It looks like Yahoo Inc. (Nasdaq: YHOO) is finally putting some of its money from the Alibaba IPO to work. Yesterday, the company announced plans to purchase online advertising firm Brightroll for $640 million. The news comes just a day after a Reuters report emerged that two of the company's top 10 shareholders have been disappointed by CEO Marissa Mayer's efforts to turn around the company. The report indicated there has been a greater effort in recent months to push Yahoo to reach an agreement with AOL Inc. (NYSE:AOL).
