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.

Bing passes Yahoo, now behind Google

Posted in Google by Conner Flynn on September 14th, 2010

Microsoft’s Bing search engine has just overtaken Yahoo and is now in the second place spot for search engine’s in the US. That means it is now going to go up against Google, the top dog. At least according to The Nielsen Company.

In August alone, Bing grew from 13.6 percent to 13.9 percent of the US search market. Yahoo declined from 14.3 percent to 13.1 percent. While Google’s share went up from 64.2 percent in July to 65.0 percent. Google shouldn’t worry though. With Bing and Yahoo combined, their search share of 27.0 percent is still less than Google’s.

YouTube and Yahoo pillows

Posted in Home by Conner Flynn on May 20th, 2010

Are you a fan of Youtube? Of course you are. It’s full of cute kitties and humans being hit in the crotch and whatnot. What about Yahoo? Well, then these pillows might be for you.

Rest your head on the web with these geek pillows from etsy. These handmade fleece pillows measure about 12″x12″ and are filled with 100% polyester fiberfill, not videos and photos from your account.

Yahoo iPad app screenshots

Posted in iPad by Conner Flynn on March 28th, 2010

Some screenshots of Yahoo’s iPad app have surfaced, and it looks way better than their website and uses the iPad’s screen space well. In just a few days the iPad will start shipping, so it’s time to start thinking about apps.

This one will be on your list just because it looks so nice. They did a great job with the UI. I hope others are paying attention. Not at all what you would expect from Yahoo.

AT&T removes Google for Yahoo Search on Motorola Backflip

Posted in AT&T by Conner Flynn on March 2nd, 2010

AT&T’s first Android phone won’t be shipping with Google Search. Instead, the Motorola Backflip’s home screen will feature a Yahoo Search widget, and the browser will run Yahoo searches by default. In fact it will be the first Android device with Yahoo as the main search engine.

Obviously appeasing Apple is high on AT&Ts priority list. We can’t really see what else this move does. It just says hey, we love Apple and fear them. There are four other AT&T Android phones coming soon, and we wonder if they will follow suit.

Yahoo to offer free Wi-Fi

Posted in Yahoo by Conner Flynn on November 10th, 2009

Yahoo to offer free Wi-FiGoogle recently made a gift of free WiFi to 47 airports across the US. Now Google’s nemesis Yahoo, also wants to be a part of the free Wi-Fi game, so they are offering it up in New York’s Times Square next year.

Yahoo says: “While Yahoo! is the place where your world meets the world online, over 500,000 of you take in Times Square each day and it’s become a central spot for New Yorkers and people around the world. We and our partners at the Times Square Alliance think it’s the perfect place to bring you free Wi-Fi service.”

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 Japan to scan passersbys, display personalized billboard content

Posted in News by Conner Flynn on April 9th, 2009

Yahoo Japan to scan passersbysThey are always coming up with more ways to sell us things. Now a new type of billboard is on the way, displaying ads suited to your individual tastes as you by. The odds are pretty good that a fair amount of these ads will be for fast food and gadgets.

You can thank Yahoo Japan, who plans to install billboards with not only cameras, but also facial analysis tech to identify your age and sex. They will also display content like news and weather. I wonder if that facial analysis will tell teens they need Clearasil.

Samsung, Yahoo Get Cozy with Internet Televisions

Posted in Television by Nino Marchetti on January 5th, 2009


Samsung is turning to an online video partner in the same way LG and Netflix relate in order to begin bringing Internet to select flat panel HDTVs. Yahoo is the choice for Samsung in this venture and televisions from this relationship will be available sometime this year.

The new “Interent@TV – Content Service” from Samsung makes use of Yahoo’s Widget Engine to bring a variety of Internet-related content to the home media room screen. A host of Widgets wil be available, including Flickr, Yahoo News, Yahoo Weather and Yahoo! Finance, USA TODAY, YouTube, eBay and Showtime Networks, among others. Other services will be added over time.

Google and Yahoo offer advertising deal revision

Posted in News by Darrin Olson on November 3rd, 2008

Google and Yahoo offer to revise advertising partnershipIn an attempt to keep in the good graces of the Justice Department, Google and Yahoo are looking into revising the deal for an advertising partnership between the two companies. An anonymous person close to the negotiations has said the revisions are drastically scaled back from the original talks.

The new deal would have an agreement term of just 2 years; much less than the original plan for 10 year. It also would limit the amount that Yahoo could earn from ads placed by Google to just 25 percent, which may help ensure Yahoo stays in the advertising game. Google advertisers would also have the option to opt-out of placing ads on Yahoo at their own discretion.

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.

Microsoft interested in Yahoo’s search business?

Posted in News by Conner Flynn on May 18th, 2008

Microsoft still having troubles with launching Windows XP Service Pack 3Microsoft released a statement today that said it was “considering and has raised with Yahoo an alternative that would involve a transaction with Yahoo but not an acquisition of all of Yahoo.” Microsoft would not give details, but word is that sources at both companies agree that it involves Microsoft buying Yahoo’s search business as well as their ad business related to text-based ads. I hope Yahoo puts out soon, cuz I’m getting sick of hearing about it.
