Let me be one of the first to say thank you Yahoo! for years of great reading. I will miss you. All is not lost, though. Yahoo! Picks will remain available at its web based home as it has been for years. Yahoo's New and Notable sites will have a new home, front and center at http://dir.yahoo.com/, which is the main entry page for the Yahoo Directory (once upon a time this page was used by everyone). I wont go into the meaning this change signifies in the larger scheme of things. I'll go into it that deeper in The Ward Report.
Keep it coming...
Lastly, why would Yahoo! discontinue a service that gave them permission to get in my inbox everyday? More on that later.
Link well my friend,
