I had heard that Yahoo was bringing out a new web interface, but I was surprised to find a Windows 8 app show up in the store as a featured app. Given this is my mainstay for mail no matter what company I work for or what internet provider I am using. Now the question is how much benefit does it give over the Windows Mail client? For basic functionality the Yahoo Mail app is well laid out and easy to use. It makes quick work of operations like moving messages to folders or creating and replying to ...
Just in case you missed the news, Yahoo has created it’s own query thingy. No, no LINQ provider, it’s a “query language”. Check it out! http://developer.yahoo.com/... Quote: What is YQL? Yahoo! makes a lot of structured data available to developers, primarily through its web services. These services require developers to locate the right URLs and documentation to access and query them which can result in a very fragmented experience. The YQL platform provides a single endpoint service that enables ...
Well, the layoffs hit Yahoo. Good luck to all of you and anyone else losing their job in this unbelievable economic downturn. We’re all in this together and hopefully things will get better sooner than expected. Juggle is looking to add another .NET developer with good windows development and database skills if you are looking. Just use the contact form on this blog and I’ll get the right people in touch with you. The position does require that you live in the St. Louis area. Technorati Tags: Yahoo ...
At my local Starbucks, they have 2 tip jars and they often times have you select who you like. Obama vs Clinton, Dogs vs Cats, Microsoft vs Yahoo. With the recent discussions of Microsoft offering Yahoo a ton of money to try to compete with Google I was just wondering has anyone else been following this month long development that quickly ended on Saturday with Microsoft backing out on offering Yahoo any more money for the company. When I was at the Microsoft Summit a couple of weeks ago, I was asking ...
If you look at the history of my blog posts (and why would you) you will notice a trend. When posts were high a vast majority of them was simply passing information along from another site. No more than public bookmarking with a few comments. I used my blog to keep a history of the things I found interesting. And if someone else also found them interesting, great! Now that posts are low, I usually put more thought into each post and try to depart some real information from myself. Posts dropped dramatically ...
The possible purchase of Yahoo by Microsoft is purely about taking on Google. I have to say with all the privacy concerns around Google and their lack of real success outside their core business this could be a serious challenge to them. Google's advertising model works by shear mass of subscribers paying very small amounts and this is how they have made their money. If this allows Microsoft to challenge the Google brand then I think that is good for the consumer and industry. However all Search ...
One day after my blog post on Yahoo cutting jobs, Microsoft makes an offer to buy them out! Apparently this talk has been rumor for some time now and Microsoft has finally made an offer of $44.6 billion. Is Yahoo worth that much? Should be interesting to see where this goes...

Yahoo just announced it would cut 1000 jobs by February. Others will soon follow as they look at fourth quarter reports. This doesn't look good for current job seekers or college graduates who will graduate in the spring. What's going to turn this economy around? Technorati Tags: yahoo, college graduates, job ...
Jeremy Zawodny wants to see RSS-emitting APIs for every widget out there. Ding! That's how my AmzWish widget (you can see an example on my blog or on the AmzWish generator page) was created: simply making calls to AmazonOps exposed by RSSBus (which outputs RSS feeds). Basically AmzWish is just some html mixed in with an RSS feed. You can make your own or view the source here. The same thing could easily be done for Yahoo! Shopping - maybe I should put together some operations for the RSSBus yahooOps ...
Check this out Yahoo Messenger interoperating with Live Messenger. A friend and I tried to get this work about a month or so back. Biggest trouble we had was being able to add to the IM list. I mean in Live, if I were to add myfriend@yahoo.com wouldnt it just think that that was just a passport id? But its good to note that others have had success. Should revisit and give it a try.

If not, Yahoo's new Livesearch at Alltheweb might help by suggesting alternative search terms.
