Angela Gunn

Angela Gunn repeatedly justified her place in Yahoo Internet Life magazine as one of the most talented brains in history ever to put words together and form coherent sentences. Back in '98 she logged off YIL. But she's back! And here I was about to cancel my subscription.. not now! not to mention she's both incredibly intelligent AND drop dead gorgeous! wakka wakka wakka! December 2000's YIL (no link available) initiates Angela Gunn's return with a column that will focus on Net ethics. Ebert, Katz and Gunn. After all these years you think they finally found the right combination?

Barnes And Noble steps up for sloppy seconds.

Barnes And Noble steps up for sloppy seconds. After Amazon elected not to renew their agreement with Yahoo, Barnes and Noble replaced the online bookseller as Yahoo's premier advertiser for books. It is uncertain as to whether or not Yahoo and BN have had the grueling discussion regarding the number of partners they've each shared in the past, but it looks like an optimistic relationship regardless.

mp3.com ordered to pay Universal $118 million

mp3.com ordered to pay Universal $118 million for copying CDs to the Mymp3 service, a service designed for owners of those CDs (mp3.com made distribution agreements with the other record labels trying to sue). On the flip side, Yahoo scored a deal with the RIAA to let them webcast music. It's a wacky week in online music [via davenetics].

Yahoo now has a PayPal-style service.

Yahoo now has a PayPal-style service. What is Yahoo not doing these days? And how does this relate to them being a media company? They've got the directory, bill payment, auctions, bookmarks, and a music player, among their many offerings. It seems like they've copied many major internet applications and put them in one place. Are they the "Microsoft" of the web in terms of innovation?

Gustavus Adolphus must be smiling.

Gustavus Adolphus must be smiling. The Stockholm Stock Exchange has launched a hostile takeover bid for the London Stock Exchange. My Swedish in-laws must be so proud. Or, um, not...

Boy Scouts: 1 Gay Memebers: 0

Boy Scouts: 1 Gay Memebers: 0 Court Says Boy Scouts Can Bar Gays, which is slightly troubling, in that a psuedo-national organization can make rules that go against government policy. I don't see how a scoutmaster being gay has anything to do with teaching kids how to tie knots and go camping though.

Yahoo-Groups! Yahoo! seems to be building itself into a virtual AOL. I suppose they are going to grab a cable company or entertainment company next. Hey - maybe Paramount's new owners will put it on the block.

You know, after all the GW ads, I'm afraid that this will look rather silly.

yahoo doing some small re-designing

yahoo doing some small re-designing, and I say it's about time, I was never implying they should have a flash intro or something, just something newer. It's a pleasure anyway.

Yahoo released their mp3/CD/other media

Yahoo released their mp3/CD/other media player today, complete with skins. How long until there is a Yahoo! browser?

Court orders Yahoo to block French access to Nazi memorabilia.

Court orders Yahoo to block French access to Nazi memorabilia. Does it bother anyone else that the French courts think they can regulate an American business? I dislike Nazis as much as the next guy but this seems to be a bit much on the part of the French.

To continue the theme,

To continue the theme, Yahoo starts going after "sound-alike" domains with a little help from ICANN.

This is one for discussion. Last week, I read an article debating whether or not photography was a true art form like painting or drawing, or if instead it was merely a reflection of reality and not artistic. With that in mind, when we see photos like this one, this one, and this one, why do we assume that any part of what was captured was the truth? Is the camera an impartial observer, or is the photographer staging these images as a painter would? Do you think a photograph has enough reality to be considered the truth, or is a photograph a miniaturized view of reality, depending on what you point a camera at? I'm curious to hear people's thoughts, as I see groups on every side of the issue spinning these photos to support their cause.

Bantu is the holy grail of instant messaging apps. The people behind it have been working on this for a while, and they're now offering a web-based, java client that can talk to ICQ, MSN, and Yahoo instant message clients. If it were a client side application, I'd probably use it, I'm not a big fan of leaving a browser window open all the time. Another drawback is that it can't reach AIM users.

Yahoo! is being sued. The plaintiffs claim that Yahoo!'s use of cookies violates Texas anti-stalking laws.

Well, that was quick. Last week Clintion & Reno urge the FBI to go into a full investigation of the DoS attacks of Yahoo, eBay, etc., and they're already suspecting it was German crackers. They don't actually say how or why they suspect them, other than the program used in the attacks might have been German. It'd be nice if they could actually show that the attacks originated from German IP addresses before they start suspecting anyone.

Do you, a, have problems getting to Yahoo? Yahoo was unreachable for much of the morning, and it turns out that it was apparently due to hackers. I saw estimates that the loss of 3 hours worth of traffic meant about 58 million lost page views. How many dollars is that?

When I got started on the web in '94-95, most pages were somehow related to Star Trek and recognizing William Shatner as the god that he is. It's funny, but the old stuff like the Mosaic's What's New page, Jerry Yang's homepage, and the machine he used to house his search engine on are all still online. Even good old Mosaic Communications' URL: mcom.com points to Netscape. Who says the web is temporary?

note to geeks: having a pair of Yahoo! boxers will probably not impress any women. Just another product available from the Yahoo store site. But wait, there's more! Apparently one store isn't enough for Yahoo, there's also a store specializing in Yahoo! branded backpacks and messenger bags, as if you'll get more street cred at the San Jose International Airport with one of those over your shoulder.

This is weird. Today, I accidentally typed 'Addidas.com' in my browser and ended up at Yahoo. I looked up the domain's owner, but it wasn't Yahoo. Adidas.com is what I was really looking for.

Yahoo is now offering 10Mb of free file storage...

Yahoo is now offering 10Mb of free file storage... and I just finished designing a remote file storage app in ColdFusion, so I could store Word documents to be accessed from home, work, and the road for my personal use. Damn.

Yahoo now has co-branding

Yahoo now has co-branding arrangements going on. I hate to see this trend continue, as I see it diluting the reputation of both companies. What's Pepto-Bismol got to do with teens having a fun summer? Anyone care to make the connection for me? What's next, Geritol sponsoring a site aimed at toddlers?
