Yahoo’s CES Announcements




Google’s not the only search company with something to announce at CES today. Reuters reports that Yahoo is unveiling a new service that allows mobile phones and TVs to control its Web services similarly to the way computers do now.

Chief Executive Terry Semel on Friday will describe the new products — marketed under the newly established Yahoo Go brand — in a speech at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, the U.S. electronics industry’s largest trade show.

The products include Yahoo Go Mobile and Yahoo Go TV. A third product, Yahoo Go Desktop, will tie the phone and TV services back to the most common way of using Yahoo services, which far and away remains the personal computer.

Yahoo will also announce a deal to pre-install email and instant messaging on millions of Motorola cell phones. Hmmm, seems Motorola doesn’t believe in monogamy. ;-)
