|Yahoo! To Power Search On Acer PC's|
Yahoo! has signed a "multi-year" deal with Acer to ensure that Yahoo! is the default search and homepage for Internet Explorer an all Acer computers.
Acer sold 2.6m PC's last year.
|Our goal is to give users choice," Dan Rosensweig, Yahoo's chief operating officer, said. "We have always lived in a world where people had a choice and wanted to come to us," he said. |
yeah this is about the only way yahoo will be able to get new people to use it's search engine. and I'm sure 99% of them will change their settings to google the day they unpack it.

I doubt less than 5% would know how.

I agree with that 100%. With running a community based site of non techie people It really opened my eyes to the average internet joe's ablilty. I was shocked to read recently on my forum that a good deal of members didn't have any idea of how to make it their homepage.
I hope such deals work for yahoo, can't have every one using google now can we,
fantastic company google, but
we need competition an all that,,
Now, yahoo,, a few more features on site explorer would be appreciated
Yahoo is alright, but I know all the acer systems we setup for our clients will be setup with google before they leave the shop.
why is that, did they request it, or are you just doing your bit for the betterment of the internet as you see it,

I say, nice job yahoo on this one. competition is good.
Yet another reason not to buy Acer ;-)
