Are Any Advisors Still Using Yahoo! As We Watch It Painfully Impode?

Watching Yahoo's slow motion descent in recent months has been painful. Once so hot, the company yesterday laid off another 500 employees and it was reported that its image search was returning results with pornographic shots included. 

This Website Is For Financial Professionals Only


TechCrunch's coverage of yesterday's bad news about Yahoo was only the latest episodes in a long descent for the company. Which makes me wonder: Who is using Yahoo! these days?  

Are any advisors still relying on its very excellent (and fee) Yahoo! Finance data? Are any of you using its My Yahoo! still?

Google seems to have overpowered Yahoo! so much and it would be good to know if advisors have moved over to Google and away from the troubled Yahoo! 

When you read stories about how Google is starting to abuse its dominant position, it's a bit scary to see Yahoo! continue to come undone. 

If you're still using Yahoo!, please let us know what you're using it for.
