Email Wars

The war is on. Yahoo Vs Google. Where is Hotmail, btw ? Who Bothers, anyway.

Throw your PCs. The network becomes the PC.

    may be im missing a point which you think makes it slow.. it would be nice if you mention that attribute (where is it slow)

    Yahoo ups the space, corporatizes design

    Inspite of my gratitude for the extra 75 MB(160 times the size of my first hard disk).I don’t like Yahoo Mail’s new corporate appearance. The previous design may have lacked maturity, but it had character. Much of the appeal of…
