Yahoo Email Now Has Facebook Updates

Posted in Yahoo by Conner Flynn on May 26th, 2011

Yahoo has updated their email with the ability to tweet and post Facebook status updates. Now you can do it all from your email, well not all, but more. Should be convenient for Twitter and Facebook addicts. There’s also a new 100 MB attachment limit, which is pretty nice.

Good move by Yahoo. I would have expected Gmail to do this first. It’s not a feature I care about much but some will really love this.

Yahoo accepts Google and Facebook logins

Posted in Yahoo by Conner Flynn on January 19th, 2011

Last year Yahoo started using Bing to power its search engine and this year they have announced that they will be accepting Google and Facebook account logins via the OpenID authentication protocol. Yahoo! says that this will make it easier for users to access their services without the need to sign up.

The new OpenID authentication system starts tomorrow. I wonder if we will see much more of Yahoo, since this doesn’t look good for them. They wish that others would be accepting their logins instead.

Yahoo unveils new home page in U.S. beta

Posted in Yahoo by Shane McGlaun on July 22nd, 2009

new_yahoo_homepage-sbIt seems more than a bit odd to me that many, myself included, consider Yahoo to be down and out despite the fact that it sits comfortably in the second place spot for search. Google may be far above the competition in the search market, but Yahoo is still doing well.

Yahoo has announced what it calls the most significant redesign since the search engine launched nearly a decade ago. The new home page offers users a less cluttered look with less Yahoo services grafted on to muddy the waters.

Yahoo Calendar goes beta

Posted in Yahoo by Shane McGlaun on October 9th, 2008

Yahoo CalendarSince Yahoo and Microsoft broke off acquisition talks over the summer, Yahoo’s stock price has been tanking. Yahoo is working on an advertising deal with Google it hopes will help its stocks. In an effort to woo new users to its Yahoo Mail service, it has introduced a new feature.

The new feature is called Yahoo Calendar and it is a popup feature within Yahoo Mail. The application is built on the Zimbra platform, which is technology Yahoo acquired with the Zimbra purchase last year. Zimbra uses open standards allowing Yahoo Calendar to be compatible with other calendar services online.

Flickr bikes coming to a city near you

Posted in Yahoo by Conner Flynn on September 16th, 2008

Flickr bikes coming to a city near youThis is one of a small fleet of GPS and cameraphone equipped bicycles that Flickr has deployed in select cities around the world. It’s purple, solar powered, pedal powered, GPS powered and it probably needs a little basket with a bow to complete the girl’s bike look. The bikes have handlebar-mounted cameraphones (Nokia N95s, based on the metadata in the Flickr photos) that will snap a shot every 60 seconds while the bike is in motion. Then the photos get uploaded with the geodata, to a special Flickr account.

I have no idea what the purpose is, other then publicity. I suppose they could partner with Nokia etc and start selling these bikes. They are likely to be a nice collectible in a few years, so if you have one keep it safe. And try not to get into too much trouble snapping pics of drug dealers and uploading them.

Yahoo! Pipes RSS Feed EditorYahoo! has introduced a new online service called Pipes that allows you to create unique mashups of RSS feeds by manipulating and aggregating feeds to create a new feed that is more useful and relevant.

To create a Pipe, you use a visual editor to edit and filter different types of feeds. Pipes consist of pre-configured modules which are drug onto the editor’s canvas and then wired together in a chain in which one module’s output becomes the input for the next module. Each module performs a single, specific task. For example, the Fetch module will retrieve a feed URL, while the Sort module will re-order a feed based on criteria you provide. There are currently over 20 different
