What happens to my mobile services if Microsoft buys Yahoo!?

What happens to my mobile services if Microsoft buys Yahoo!?

The big news of the day is obviously the Microsoft bid for Yahoo! and this immediately prompted me to wonder how this would impact my mobile usage of Yahoo's services. I currently use Flickr for my online photo repository and mobile upload tool. I have a couple of Yahoo! email accounts and belong to a few Yahoo! Groups. I also enjoy using the Yahoo! Go services such as email, photos, sports, news, maps, and search on my mobile devices and find it to be one of the best mobile services clients that is available today. Lastly, I am a Yahoo! Music unlimited subscriber and have unlimited subscription music playing on my Windows Mobile and S60 devices. In addition, Yahoo! services work quite well on Macs and many Microsoft services are not fully supported on Macs so this is a concern of mine as well.

Share your cameraphone pics everywhere with ShoZu

Share your cameraphone pics everywhere with ShoZu

As a father of three active daughters, I like to use my camera-enabled phones to capture moments of their lives when I don't have a dedicated camera in hand. I upload these pics to Flickr, Vox, my blog, my Facebook site, and sometimes my TextAmerica site. I have used the native utilities on S60 devices, Vox upload tool, special email address (WordPress functionality), Facebook utility on a BlackBerry, and ShoZu in the past, but am pleased that something major was just updated that brings all these various tools into a single package. With the latest version of ShoZu you can now easily send your latest snapshot to all these services, and a lot more, with a single upload via MMS or email. This will save me lots of time and also allow me to post to several sites at once.
