    Those figures definitely seem to be completely out of proportions.

    Two hasbeens and once-players helping to prop each other up and reminisce about the good ol' days, IMO.

    I'd question the 48%/42% of webmail figures too - does that mean that Google only has 10% of the market?

    I'm not too sure about those figures, but I know a lot of asian countries use Yahoo in association with their media (eg japan), so conceivably it could be 39% including AIM

    I wonder what would happen with AIM/YIM since Live messenger and Yahoo already work with each other. If they all worked together it would be great for everyone involved. For instant messaging anyways...
