Yahoo spent $85M dollars on this ad campaign, man someone should have really told them about iGoogle
They also mock the fact that you go to Google's minimalist homepage 'so you can leave' which to be honest is exactly what I want from a search engine, one that knows exactly what it is without trying to be everything at once. Yahoo by contrast is saturated with information and intrusive flash advertisements.
If however information overload is your thing, iGoogle at least isn't littered with annoying flash ad's and is completely customisable.
Yahoo seems to really be on the offensive at the moment (at least in theory) as the CEO Carol Bartz recently criticized Google for 'only being known for search'
Sure google is synonymous with search, but it seems like every day Google is releasing something new.
