Yahoo continues its rebranding campaign dubbed “It Starts with Y!ou” by adding some more bling blings to the Yahoo Messenger client. Now with new audibles and avatars, YM extends Yahoo’s “Yodelling” campaign which started with the Yodel Studio.

Yahoo and Microsoft has just announced their search and online partnership and it’s 10 years of shared revenue for both companies, are you excited?
It’s interesting how major Internet players will try to out buzz each other with their respective announcements. When it was announced earlier this week that Microsoft is set to launch its new search engine Kumo, now officially called Bing, we didn’t hear anything about Google’s Wave Project.
