Google gets all the press, but Yahoo is really a developer’s best friend. Their search and maps APIs are fantastic, and then there’s this. Yahoo is old school, so it doesn’t get the “new and fancy” love anymore, but they’re not dead yet.
Zawodny made a great point once that Google backing into Yahoo one app at a time. Google adds app after app until they end up looking like…Yahoo. Of course, Zawodny works there, so his opinion is about as neutral as Scoble’s, but he still has a good point.
