    You know, when people describe the Mail as a bunch of Yahoos, I never thought they'd go out and take it so literally.

    I'd bet the majority of those 'assets' Yahoo own are tumblr and Flickr....I don't know anyone that uses anything else from them I don't think.

    Naw, they made an absolute killing before the dot-com bubble burst, and they've been mostly just sitting on that for the last decade or so. It's the only reason they haven't gone bankrupt already, but they're finally starting to run out of "legacy assets".

    I use Yahoo mail, as do most of the people in the house.

    My mom is trying to set a record for most inread messages in an inbox. I think she's over 100,000 now :wallbash:
