OK, not strictly blogging related but one for Australian readers…what’s going on with Yahoo.com.au, I visited the site this morning to find this:
International readers maybe interested however, because this is the first time I’m aware of Yahoo dropping its standard front page for a co-owned and branded site.
Truthfully I really dig this design. Not so sure about the co branding. But I really think Yahoo.com should look into this and pursue a cleaner portal like their Aussie partners did. It’s badass.
Duncan, its channel 7’s new marketing plan. I wonder how much Yahoo paid for that spot. :D
Or 7 paid for it…they had a tie up at one stage with AOL didn’t they?
Yep, 7 and aol where doing something together but it went nowhere and was overshadowed by ninemsn.
I’m with the Cowboy here (dang it! :-) – I really like the design – very clean and crisp
yeah i saw something about this on the news a few weeks back.
it’s like MSN9…
maybe we’ll get Google10?
Why don’t you just ring up Kerry Stokes and ask him what’s going on? All you sandgropers know one another, don’t you? :)
I think it is definitely there to compete with ninemsn. The design looks awesome, and I’m listed pretty good there to, 30th for Horror writers in AU only search
