  1. Yahoo has announced the intention to change its log file data retention policy to offer "consumers a more robust individualized experience." The company has decided to expand the time it keeps users' search records: from three months to 18 months. It also says it will be closely examining what the right policy and time frame should be for other log file data.

    I use dogpile or google so this means nothing to me or the other half of the world. Yahoo is being left behind and the only reason you would want it is for finance, email, or IM... all of which you can get on other sites.

    Yet another reason not to use Yahoo. Sort of like they're committing commercial suicide.

    Meh, hold the data I have no intention of giving you as long as like.
