My Yahoo upgrade coming soon

Yahoo will upgrade its My Yahoo personalized home page in the coming weeks, the company's CEO said

Yahoo's My Yahoo service, which lets users aggregate content and services on a single Web page, will soon get a significant upgrade, the company's chief executive officer said Tuesday.

The enhancement to My Yahoo is part of the company's continued emphasis on giving its users tools to personalize their Internet experience, said CEO Terry Semel at the Morgan Stanley Technology Conference in San Francisco, which was webcast.

"In the next few weeks, you'll see My Yahoo take on a new form and a new shape," Semel said. "We've been working on it for some time."

My Yahoo was launched in July 1996, and as such is a precursor to the many customizable Web pages and personalization services that came later and are a standard feature of many news sites and consumer and enterprise portals.

At My Yahoo, people can access services like Yahoo Mail and choose, to an extent, the types of news, information and sources that get featured on the page.

Some of My Yahoo's most recent enhancements, introduced over two years ago, include support for content syndication feeds like RSS and Atom and a version for mobile devices.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
