<![CDATA[Yahoo opens up its search toolbox to developers | CNET News.com:
Yahoo co-founder Jerry Yang is expected to announce Tuesday that the company’s search network will embrace Web services and its commercial subsidiary will take a new name.
The Sunnyvale, Calif.-based company has created the Yahoo Search Developer Network at http://www.developer.yahoo.com, and plans to unveil it at the Search Engine Strategies Conference here. The network will allow software developers to create new applications (with the aid of application programming interfaces, or APIs) on top of Yahoo search, including images, video, news and local search.
So much for a quiet ascent for Google. Real competition is here, now.]]>
