Renew it, actually. Microsoft and Yahoo signed their search deal in 2009, which saw the Bing become the search provider for Yahoo services. The partnership has seen ups and downs, though. There was even recent speculation that Yahoo might end the deal. However, both companies have announced a continuation — albeit...

Although Yahoo has made some slight progress recently, Microsoft remains the only company that can complete with Google in the search market. The Bing search service is slowly increasing its share. But it’s the Yahoo Bing Network (based on the company’s search platform) that has shown some very impressive growth this...

It’s not often you hear the word vying in technology, but that is exactly what Microsoft and Yahoo! are up for right now, at least as far as the search engine domain is concerned. With Apple’s deal with Google for the default search position on iOS expiring next year, the company is said to be soliciting bids from the...

One of the first big applications to launch on Windows 8, the Yahoo Mail app is no longer available for download from the Windows Store. Odd, but hardly surprising. Microsoft has done a good job convincing developers to code for its modern platform, and while several large companies have brought their solutions to...

But while this much is clear that Bing is doing a lot better than before, it still has a long distance to travel to dent Google Search. The latest search engine numbers for the month of July are in from...

Yahoo! is one technology giant that has wholeheartedly embraced Windows 8. The Internet portal readily develops applications for Microsoft’s newest platform — no fuss, no mess, just pure coding. The latest to arrive is the self-explanatory, Yahoo! Finance. Those of you who live and breathe financial data will...

Microsoft sure is quick with these studies. You may be aware that Yahoo recently decided to ban working from home, and the Internet giant now forces employees to come to the office every single day. Needless to say, many people have criticized the company for its new strategy. Even Bill Gates, when recently asked,...

The on-by-default DNT feature is one of the most controversial features of Microsoft’s IE10, but despite criticisms from various industry quarters, the company seems intent on continuing with it. In fact, it has asked other technology leaders to follow suit. More than a few browsers come with similar Do Not Track...
