YaWho?

Two of the top most activities on internet are email and search. Yahoo’s search was always second to Google and Gmail is closing ground by providing faster service and more free storage than Yahoo.

While Google has revolutionized advertisement on internet, making more money than ever, Yahoo announced lower forecasts.

Yahoo is not a complete loser, it has had its own share of sucess.
– Google recently closed “Google Answer” because it could not appeal to people as much as “Yahoo Answer”
– Yahoo Games is a big hit, Yahoo Widgets are better than Google’s.
– Yahoo messenger is much more famous and so is Yahoo Finance.

The bottom line is that YAHOO is losing ground in the Email and Search areas and cannot seem to demonstrate leadership in new technologies. I suggest Yahoo should get more original and stop playing the catch up game with google.
