The past couple of years have been pretty good to Yahoo's search business, but there's no doubt that the company isn't too pleased about Google's continued domination.

Here's a cool prospect: Imagine making a call while on-the-go, and rather than have the transmission go through a tower, it instead goes through someone else's phone. This idea isn't new, but Qualcomm has the capability to make it a standard, and with LTE Direct, it hopes to accomplish that. LTE Direct has the... Read more...
The Edward Snowden revelations have faded a bit from public view in light of other, more recent political activities, but a new report regarding the NSA and Yahoo has people talking about it once more.

Ask.com's service might annoy many today thanks to its uncanny ability to show up as a toolbar option in many installers, but back in the day, when it was still known as Ask Jeeves, many considered it to be one of the coolest services going. Amidst much competition, Ask's usage declined over time, and as it became clear that the company wasn't... Read more...
For those who hang around this sector, Flurry is a common name. Every so often, perhaps every quarter or so, Flurry would unleash a flurry (sorry, we couldn't resist) of data surrounding platforms and mobile insights. Since launching in 2008, it has grown into a trusted, heavily relied upon source for information... Read more...
The transition from offline media like DVDs and Blu-ray discs to online streaming has been swift, and with it comes increased competition.

When the OpenSSL vulnerability Heartbleed broke cover in April, it felt like it was the only thing that mattered for an entire week. Like many news outlets, we reported on the bug from a number of different angles, and it was all for good reason: It's a severe bug, and one that the world needs to know about. Given all...

It's not too often that you see technology firms reveal data on diversity in the workplace -- or lack thereof -- so kudos to Yahoo for stepping to the plate with a bunch of figures. In a blog post this week, Yahoo disclosed details about gender, ethnicity, and how they break down across technical and non-technical... Read more...
Yahoo is reportedly in discussions with video producers about plans to debut a video service that will go head-to-head against YouTube, the uber-popular video site owned by Google.

Many NSLs were accompanied by non-disclosure orders that... Read more...
From Apple to Yahoo, tech companies have a great deal of our data in their hands, and thanks to whistleblower Edward Snowden, we know that the government wants as much of it as possible--and has been too successful in that regard. In some cases, there’s just nothing much a company can do when the NSA comes... Read more...
Yahoo is proud as a peacock to point out that it was an early adopter of Do Not Track, but at the same time, the company isn't willing to let that little tidbit prevent it from suddenly abandoning the privacy initiative by ignoring DNT requests.

Yahoo announced some new changes to Flickr with version 3.0 for iOS and Android, and they seem to be aimed at competing with the wildly popular Instagram photo sharing service with a number of filters, advanced editing, intelligent search, and plenty of social elements.

Not to self: Yahoo isn't a bad place to work for. Second note to self: Yahoo is an even better placed to be fired from. We know, that sounds insanely crazy, and typically speaking, that's a bunch of hogwash (the part about being fired from Yahoo, that is), But it turned out to be true for Henrique de Castro, Yahoo's...
