Yahoo is becoming a media company now with a search powered by microsoft. Yahoo is no longer a tech company.

All right, my old Yahoo email account has been becoming more and more annoying to use. I think it's time to cut the loss and stick to gmail. I like minimalistic, and this is becoming complicated.

They are powered by the souls of the things being restrained?

YAY!!!!
I have hated Yahoo for years...
Why? Because, at some point in time thier website was so incredibly over cluttered with ads and crap it drove me away.

For year's I've used google because... well look at the main page. It's not incredibly annoying is it? I couldn't say the same for Yahoo back when I first started using google.

Yahoo killed themselves, just like RealPlayer, and don't even get me started on that malware/virus like sh*t software.

Yep. Yahoo uses Bing search and Microsoft adCenter ads? I'm guessing Yahoo just gets a cut of the profits like anyone else. Still, makes me wonder what Yahoo has left going for it. Pretty soon, Yahoo! will replace whatever it was Microsoft was trying to do with MSN, only instead of $44bil in the bank, they'll have no clear business strategy, just like MSN.

[citation][nom]chrisjust98[/nom]So since it's powered by Bing, then isn't that the same as using Bing only with the Yahoo logo and yahoo ad-spam, clutter, and other anti-minimalist crap etc across the page?[/citation]

Fixed/answered.

Yahoo had no clear business strategy before. Now, they're focusing on just being a media company. So, Yahoo will make all their money off the ads you look at while viewing all the news they will offer.

I feel no need to switch from Google. It's simple, doesn't have annoying backgrounds, and isn't run by Microsoft. How can I lose?
