  • Yahoo Mail is King!

    Yahoo has been good at search, but Google owns Live Search, no doubt. She is so right about Yahoo having the cleanest email ever. 10 to 20 spam messages a month out of 400 to 500 legitimate total and I never see any in my In Box!

    I would have loved to have seen the Google Yahoo partnership work instead of Microsoft Yahoo. But....she's right. Yahoo has proved to me since 1996 that they can be trusted. Password Security has always been tops. My Email account has been solid without loss of one piece of data and the account is always there. Even when I've not used it for many months at a time.

    That's contrary to AOL, MS Hotmail, etc and I have never been much a a gmail user, although I do have an account. Homepage Awesome along with Financial and Sports Sections!

    btw.... decent interview, but picking out the one person person to complain about spam got what it deserved. Thrown right back at you ZDNet!

    Though I could not quite play the whole video, I'd like to echo my personal experience as to the trustworthiness of Yahoo. I think among the early dot com companies, Yahoo has emerged at the top, and another - Amazon.com.

    MS must go-down the "drain" as the worst, cut-throat company ever! in every aspect! Trustworthiness is far even from their vocabulary!

    I'd rather like to see, ASAP, divorce of Yahoo with MS, before something bad happens to Yahoo! I don't know about Yahoo-Google marriage, rather Yahoo should get strong on its own without these "too-big-to-fail" mergers, which only monopolize by cut-throat tactics. Every time such things have only resulted in a death-sentence for companies with superior products and services!

    I wish a lot a luck to Yahoo! to become stronger and set a superior de facto standard of internet.

    Kudos to Yahoo! Go Yahoo!

    Just another thing, --

    I listened to the whole interview, but, neither of the interviewers - Molly nor Tom, asked Bartz about MS involvement with Yahoo. How is it working out? and what value does Yahoo is getting from MS, if at all? I thought they would ask about this rather important matter.

    Also, I wanted to know what the trouble maker tycoon, Icahn is up to these days? Ms. Bartz and others on the Board, who have the best interest in maintaing Yahoo its trust with the users, should grow stronger, to keep a check on unscrupulous elements like, Icahn and MS.

    Now all that they have to do is to block SPAM and MAIL BOT'S.
