Hmmmm. I've hung on to Yahoo! when I was "invited" to switch to gmail. While I may be "old school", I prefer the functionality of Yahoo! Mail. While Google is the darling of the internet (at least in seach where I use them all the time), Yahoo! keeps chugging away with social networking acquisitions like Flickr! and del.icio.us signalling they seem to have a clear idea of next wave to catch. Time will tell . . .
