That is funny... yeah, I noticed the same thing with my mom. She used to Yahoo everything and now it"s "Google it"
I started an account with Yahoo over 10 years ago and that is the main reason I am still with them. I have folders set up with a lot of mail stored. I have a Google account, but it's mainly used for being a Mod on CB. I one day hope to make the switch, especially if the iPhone gets push for Gmail.
That's true. In the old days, if Windows and/or Office crashed, you couldn't work. Now when Google goes down, can't search for web sites (many people do that rather then bookmark or type URLs), lose email if it's on Gmail or Google accounts, sites using Adsense might go down...
It can be literally like your ISP is down or you're off the internet.
I don't use either app, i just use safari with yahoo as my homepage. Reason being I like to see whats new, and Yahoo always has a news section right on the homepage. and if i want to use googles search engine, its right there on the top right hand corner of the screen.
