  Yahoo! has agreed to buy the bloggin site Tumblr for $1.1-billion in cash.   This marks the biggest deal for Yahoo! CEO Marissa Mayer since taking over last summer.   Mayer is trying to revamp the company and tap into a young, active online user base.     Tumblr was started six years ago by high school dropout David Karp.    Under the deal, the 26-year-old Karp will remain with the company.    It's unclear if Yahoo will keep all of Tumblr's 175 employees.   Mayer is trying to revamp the company and tap into a young, active online user base.     Tumblr was started six years ago by high school dropout David Karp.    Under the deal, the 26-year-old Karp will remain with the company.    It's unclear if Yahoo will keep all of Tumblr's 175 employees.
