I used Yahoo! sometimes to check the finance/stocks section... however I had to ditch using it for even that simple thing. The stories that they put on their front page are awful. I would be embarrassed to put on my resume that I use to write for Yahoo!
I remember Yahoo when it was more like Google, just a plain and simple logo. Yahoo was the first search engine I ever used. I always believed Yahoo was the direct competitor to Google. Thesedays maybe its Bing or just Google for one.
