MyBlogLog adds profile integration with Flickr (Download Squad)

Jan 28th 2007 6:14PM I think that's a typo - I just switched one of my last 10 pictures to Private, and it dropped out of the MyBlogLog profile.

Also, it looks like you can only see the last 10 pics and you get directed to the actual Flickr site to view them.

Yahoo releases new Toolbar for IE with integration to the new Bookmarks (Download Squad)

Oct 25th 2006 2:54PM Jack - Y! Bookmarks has been around for years, ever since the early days of the toolbar (when it was called Y! Companion).

The newer service they built is MyWeb - it looks like they are replacing it with the new Bookmarks and Del.icio.us

Yahoo unveils new Bookmarks site to replace MyWeb (Download Squad)

Oct 25th 2006 12:22PM I think they've taken aspects of MyWeb and added them to Bookmarks, and the overlapping social aspects will be left with del.icio.us.

While I'm happy to see Bookmarks get some love, I'm not sure I can choose which way to move MyWeb to - I did do the Import, but all those pages are now Uncategorized (but still tagged). I'll have to work with it more to see how the social side search integration is working before committing to either of the remaining services.

By 'big guys', I didn't mean the services from them - just that MS and Google had both entered the online bookmarking arena that Yahoo has had for years.

I agree with you and Briefcase - if they can drop that before the fabled GDrive hits, I'd love it (although I'd rather see a new Calendar first...)

Yahoo! Answers gets some love from developers and press (Download Squad)

Aug 16th 2006 3:28PM Chad,

Thanks for the proper links. I thought it odd that I couldn't get to the article itself, but I couldn't see the RSS information (you don't seem to advertise it on the YDN Home page)

Chris.

Yahoo! Mail beta upgrade brings new features (V0.3.3 Build 314.7) (Download Squad)

Aug 14th 2006 7:56AM I much prefer Y! Spam filtering over Hotmail.

I've had both addresses since early mid 1990's and so they've been harvested for a long time.

Y! moves most of the spam into the Spam folder, with the Inbox getting a couple of 'nigerian' spam type messages a day.

Hotmail just lets everything in, so much that I just can't use it - similar to your current experience with Y! Mail.

Yahoo! Messenger VoIP: no charge to free numbers (Download Squad)

Aug 2nd 2006 8:03AM I live on Yahoo! - have done for years, so I have a number of people that I IM with in Y! Messenger.

With the addition of VoIP, I don't need any other IM client (especially now I can hook MSN Contacts into Y! IM).

Yahoo! Messenger VoIP: no charge to free numbers (Download Squad)

Aug 2nd 2006 7:57AM Jaymoon - In the first release of Messenger with Voice, all outgoing calls where charged to your Y! Voice account.

That's why I noticed this yesterday - it was something I hadn't seen before.

Yahoo! Mail Beta gets minor update to v3.2 Build 253.17 (Download Squad)

Aug 1st 2006 4:13PM The nearest to 'official' we've seen was back in February when we posted this:

http://yahoo.weblogsinc.com/2006/02/25/upcoming-yahoo-mail-details-from-yahoo-france/

We've yet to see several of the things mentioned in this article - but we continue to cling to the hope that Yahoo! will 'wow' us with a new version :)

RSS Readers: SOUND OFF! (Download Squad)

Jul 21st 2006 3:30PM I live in Rojo - I love the digg-like Mojo feature and the tagging that's shared across the community is great.

It's come a long way since I first ditched Bloglines for it last year.

Yahoo! and Microsoft finally connect their IM networks together (Download Squad)

Jul 14th 2006 10:39AM William - I would expect it to work fine, since the address on the Live ID is different than the Y! ID itself.

Priscilla - I don't trust any chain emails that come my way. It's always possible that they may decide to charge, but that would be a shot in the foot.

IM has been the last bastion of 'closed walls' - in this age of Web 2.0 and mash-ups, people expect to be able to choose bits from anywhere.
