Yahoo has a lot of services I like to use like Yahoo Chat or Groups or Yahoo Games. Google has a lot of services I use too like Google Docs, Calendar,
and News Reader. I also like my Google Notebook, but it looks like they're phasing that out. I think Yahoo is phasing out RSS feeds in the inbox too.
That goes both ways I guess.
Anyway, the point is, to use all the services I like I have to have both accounts because Google doesn't have a replacement service for everything I
do on Yahoo and Yahoo doesn't have a replacement service for everything I do on Google. It sucks, but Google tends to be more professionally aimed in
my opinion where Yahoo tends to be aimed more towards the social scene. So, for my work I have a Gmail account and I use my Yahoo account for fun and
Keeping my work email seperate from my personal email is a plus anyway for me. If you just want one though, it's a tough call. Either way you're
giving up lots of cool features that the other service has. But if I had to go with just one I personally would pick my Gmail because Yahoo seems real
messed up right now. They keep starting on projects and not finishing. Like the new Yahoo mail is only half done and it's been that way for months.
You click on certain options and it tells you it has to take you back to classic mail because they haven't finished what they started. I used to love
Yahoo, but they've really went off the deep end on certain things. Their new email isn't finished, their search page has become totally bloated and
their shutting off features left and right. I guess they're going broke, but I don't know really.
I think I just double posted this anonymously, but I swear I thought I was logged in.
