Still the same thing. Yahoo is more of an all-in-one kind of deal. Google is their search.

Thus, Google is a suckass copy cat, just like everyone else in the world. Meh, I don't see what's so great about Google. But I've read lots of bad crap about it. I'll go see if I can go find some of it. I know that G-mail is supposed to be really bad.(I have an account, too :( )

Not a copy cat.

Just simply one of the first around.

That's like saying "Crest copied Aquafresh!!".

And what does that have to do with the way they search today? Nothing.

....who said they didn't???

Have you read their policies though? Honestly, I recommend you Yahoo! for them and read them. Not what I'd call a good deal. Heh, while you're at it, you might as well check under "Google is evil" and "Yahoo is evil" and see which gets more results...

Why are all you teenagers such ignorant trolls in this forum?

The question is, do you? I know what I've read.

There were many search engines around before Yahoo, I'm sure that just slipped your mind though. I don't see what's so bad about Google, maybe some anti-Google fan boy's conspiracy theory. Seriously, lets make up conspiracy theories about free email/search/map/etc technology. OMG they have my personal emails sotred on their servers, and they can (possibly) tell what I googled. :rolleyes:

Well, if he/she has taken offense then...well, I guess I'm sorry. I don't see how I provoked junglizm... I'm simply asking a question. Unfortunately, the only thing I'm good at is being an asshole... :(

The question is, do you? I know what I've read.
Nope, I have no idea.

Answer is simple. We're ignorant teenagers.

You didn't provoke me, I'm fairly lenient in this forum; it wouldn't be a decent computer forum without a little flaming. ;)

My point being, all the younger members seem to troll this forum a lot. I really don't know why, I guess they figure since they know how to use the internet they know everything.

If you're going to post here, at least try to add something worth while to the conversation. "OMG Goolge is evil" isn't worth while.

Meh. Sorry about that. Not that the original post contained much in itself besides a link. Well, I'm a n00b teenager, what do you expect? Heh...

Well, it was all accidental :bonk: so...want a cookie? :cookie:

But, yeah. I do believe that in Google's policies they state that they have the right to claim ownership over anything in your e-mail. I may need to check that again, but I'm pretty sure that's what it is.
