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.

by: J. Angelo RacomaOctober 23, 2012

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.

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.

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?
