Thank you MS! I seriously hated Yahoo! Yahoo support was beyond terrible, it was horrific! I have waited for this day for a long time! See you later Yahoo and thanks for nothing!

Very odd news about Yahoo search. I started on Yahoo when it was still running from a dorm room at Stanford; I've been to parties at the founders' home in Palo Alto. And now, Yahoo is dropping out of the search game.
It's not all bad for Yahoo: they will get 88% of Bing's PPC revenues for the next five years.
I hope Y!'s Site Explorer doesn't disappear. It's really useful.
I'm very glad to see serious competition against Google. Google will be forced to actually pay attention to users and stop being so paranoid secretive.

when do you think we will start seeing Bing search results on Yahoo?

Yahoo is doing this because they will save $450 Million dollars. This is real. It will happen. There are no hard dates beyond sometime in the next year or two.

They could do it much quicker than that if they wanted to, so the question is why so much of a prolonged approach?
Someone has to have their foot on the break just a bit.

I read that this will be a white label - can't remember where i read it - which surely can't be so - can it?
What's the point of powering Yahoo!s search if Bing.com can attribute their brand - that's how they will build long term awareness and usability.
I realise that offically they get attributed traffic and reach - but it won't be true reach when the average dimbo-user will think it's still Y!'s and will never actually go to Bing.com to find out more.
Someone please tell me I read some rumour/conjecture only.
