Yahoo!, Google Add New Choices
Via Red Herring.
Yahoo and Google executives are announcing far-reaching products Friday that offer consumers more control over what they want to see on the Internet and where they want to see it.
Google is expected to roll out software, upgrade its video search service, add cell phone access, and start selling videos. Meanwhile, Yahoo is launching a group of services called Yahoo Go that provide access to a broad range of content across devices ranging from cell phones, computers, and televisions.
The announcements, which are being made at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, reflect the growing recognition by the two leading search engines that the key to winning and retaining consumers through the Internet is putting more control and more choice in their hands.
