sunnyvale - It may rumble at Yahoo, it does not prevent the company's development team to create new apps. Yahoo now going into battle with Twitters Moments in the new app Yahoo! Newsroom.
Newsroom is best described as a social network for news. Users are given the opportunity to enter into discussions with each other about some new topics. These topics Yahoo called 'Vibes'. In the Vibe are articles about a certain news event picked and compiled from various sources.
New app or not, behind the scenes rumbling at Yahoo. The company seems to make a direct hit with new services and last week there was a huge privacy problem. Private data of thousands of Yahoo accounts has fallen into the hands of hackers. There was much indignation mainly because Yahoo seems to have left much earlier to pull the bell on the leak.
