You know, no matter what anyone else says, I like Yahoo!.

It is user friendly and I've never had a problem with them. It's my homepage, my bill paying and my TV guide.

I like Yahoo!.

They're too nosy. They ask for too much information.

I've never had a Yahoo email account or signed up for any of their services because of that.

A bit too intrusive for my tastes. I don't dislike Yahoo. I just think they're too nosy.

Like Charles Bukowski said about the cops, "I don't hate them. I just feel better when they're not around." :)

You can't please everyone, all the time... :)

But Yahoo is the Grand Daddy of them all, survived where most other portals (not offering ISP services) have failed, and again beating earnings expectations....

This is what the web is all about!

Yup. Yahoo Stock has went up dramatically the last few months but seemed to have fell today..

"Yahoo will be even more aggressive in search in 2004, using its own search technology during the first quarter on most its site, replacing Google"

This will be an interesting year!

I also like Yahoo!, as a company.

David Filo [forbes.com] and Jerry Yang [forbes.com] haven't done too badly for themselves, have they?

(For anyone keeping score: The Google Guys [forbes.com] missed the mark last year.)

The Yahoo good news looks like it was not good enough to prevent the negative impact caused by the future earnings news from Intel.

Tictoc, stock traditionally falls after results are published, even if those results are good. It's just one of the quirks of the stock market, rather than a reflection on Yahoo (unless it's a huge drop).

Yeah, "buy on the rumor, sell on the news" seems to be the operative slogan.

I agree with Scott. I've used the edit bookmarks page as my start page forever.

They're too nosy. They ask for too much information.

But they are wonderfully accomodating about allowing you to put whatever information you want in answer to those nosy questions ;-).

In terms of truthful data, I suspect the Google Toolbar collects far more information than Yahoo does. They just hide the fact that they're tracking your every move rather than openly asking for information.

A bit too intrusive for my tastes.

I use their mail, chat, my.yahoo, etc. etc. and they have never asked for any info other than when I signed up and most of the questions were optional and/or questions you can fake. The reason they're asking is so they can customize ads and offers that are relevant to you. I thought customization was a good thing...

I've learned this in the last year or so and it annoys me that professional journalists covering these things don't seem to understand it. They see a stock price go down, then go looking for a reason, and are often wrong. Annoying.
