Yahoo today made a number of announcements at the Consumer Electronics Show. First, the company revealed that it has purchased Aviate, which makes a launcher for Android devices. Aviate is a learning launcher that uses contextual clues to customize the content that appears on the home screen throughout the day. Yahoo said it plans to use Aviate's user interface ideas in its own Android products later this year. Second, the company announced Yahoo News Digest, an application for the Apple iPhone that delivers news in small chunks twice per day. The app lets users customize the news items they want to receive, and delivers them to the phone automatically. The app is free to download and use, and is available starting today from the iTunes App Store. Yahoo also announced that it is adding a new Yahoo Tech section to its online news reporting, and it launched a new advertising platform for its mobile products.
