Yahoo Inc. (Nasdaq: YHOO) continued a startup buying spree with the acquisition of Bread.

Bread, based in San Francisco, was a URL shortener that allowed users to make and insert ads that people clicking through a shortened link’s webpage would have to view. The product has already been shuttered, but Bread links will work through Nov. 11. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
