Yahoo Develops Developers
While Microsoft is promoting
, its new cloud development platform, rival Yahoo put some more meat
on its development platform bones: the Yahoo
. This platform is responsible for creating the most self-indulgent
acronym ever (Y!OS). Does Yahoo really expect the press to use this monstrosity?
The Yahoo plan is to have developers exploit already-existent Yahoo services
and offer these apps to what is still a substantial user base. Developers can
tap into Yahoo's query language, application services and social features.
Can developers turn Yahoo once again into a contender? What apps would you like
to see? Thoughts welcome at firstname.lastname@example.org.
