Yahoo! launches speedy new e-mail client for Android and other platforms

by: David GonzalesDecember 12, 2012
According to the official announcement posted by Mayer on Yahoo!'s corporate blog Yodel Anecdotal, the new Yahoo! e-mail client was redesigned with speed in mind. And if you try it out for yourself, you'll find that it is indeed faster than the version that was available before the update. Also, there is now consistency in the look and feel of the e-mail client across all devices and platforms. So if you've already used it in the past but didn't quite like the overall user experience, perhaps you will now.

Apple’s 2012 profit crushed the combined profits of Google, Microsoft, Facebook, Yahoo, Amazon and Ebay

by: AdrianNovember 27, 2012
There’s a lot of Apple hate going on in the comments section of our website (sometimes justified, sometimes not as much), but if there’s one thing fanboys, Android enthusiasts and neutral tech lovers can’t deny is Cupertino’s ability of turning everything it touches into gold.

Yahoo! to pursue better mobile strategy, but not mobile OS

by: J. Angelo RacomaOctober 23, 2012
Yahoo! is trying to reinvent itself. The company's recent hiring of ex-Googler Marissa Mayer has brought in a culture change in the ailing firm. While Yahoo! has positioned itself as a media portal for so long now, Mayer is trying to bring Yahoo! back to its tech-oriented roots.

by: Chris SmithOctober 12, 2012
Smartphones and tablets are more and more present in regular day-to-day activities, which means smart device owners are more likely to use them to perform several searches then to fire up a “regular” computer for the same purpose.

Yahoo! employee smartphones: iPhone 5, Android, Windows Phone (anything but BlackBerry)

by: J. Angelo RacomaSeptember 17, 2012
We earlier wrote a news story that Yahoo! would be overhauling the company's smartphone policy. Among the new CEO Marissa Mayer's strategic shifts when she came onboard as chief executive is to revamp the company as a product company. As such, she wants employees to be able to think from the perspective of a consumer, and not just an engineer, developer, designer or whatnot.

Major overhaul comes to Flickr for Android

by: Andrew GrushAugust 22, 2012
Let's face it, Flickr for Android has never been quite on the same level as its iOS counterpart. This is no fault of Android, simply a lack of real commitment to Android on Yahoo's part. Finally, things may be changing for the better. Today a new update of the Flickr app catapults the Android version ahead, bringing a UI overhaul that includes a new tabbar, improved ways to explore Flickr, editing metadata and a heck of a lot more.

Is there really an Android botnet sending out spam?

by: Gary SimsJuly 6, 2012

Yesterday, I wrote about evidence that suggested the existence of an Android botnet which was under control of spammers and is being used to send out spam via Yahoo! Mail. The accusation came from Terry Zink over at Microsoft.

Of course, once Google heard about this, they weren’t too happy! The creators of Android issued the following statement: “The evidence does not support the Android botnet claim. Our analysis suggests that spammers are using infected computers and a fake mobile signature to try to bypass anti-spam mechanisms in the email platform they’re using.” So the question is who is right?

In light of the “scandal”, [...]

Yahoo! Mail on Android being used to send spam

by: Gary SimsJuly 5, 2012

Cyber security experts from Microsoft have spotted real-world examples of spam email sent, not from a dedicated spam server, but from Android phones. The spam being sent is the run-of-the-mill type trying to sell fake Rolex watches and other items (which can’t be mentioned in polite conversation) and their existence implies that the spammers have control of an Android based botnet. A botnet is a group of private resources (traditionally desktop PCs or servers) which have been infected with malware. Once infected the spammers can control the device and use it to send spam emails. This way they don’t consume their own resources in sending the [...]

Yahoo! Cricket: A must-have app for cricket fans

by: Carl ParkerJune 15, 2012

Bat-and-ball games, for some reason, attract a hefty number of fans the world over. Baseball, softball, and cricket are three of the more famous variations of bat-and-ball games, cricket being the most famous.

Surprised it’s not baseball? Apparently cricket sits in the second spot as the world’s most popular sport, next to football. The sport’s popularity is mainly due to its large number of fans in India, Australia, and some parts of Asia and Europe. The sport was the brainchild of the British, so it’s really not surprising to know that those areas got hooked with it, since these places were once colonized by the British Empire.
