Yahoo Leaves The World Of Search

In the search and advertising deal announced by Yahoo and Microsoft yesterday, Yahoo will turn over search for 10 years to Microsoft and Bing.   This is apparently a move to take on Google’s dominance.   I’ve been using Yahoo since the days when they resided on Stanford’s servers and only in the last few years did I switch over to Google.  Let’s hope this deal works out for Yahoo and makes the company competitive with Google.  Perhaps now Yahoo can concentrate on some of their other offerings such as email and improve upon those services.

Good piece from Wired on the deal:
