Yahoo! Answers Released


By hagrin - Posted on 05 August 2006

Yahoo! has released a new tool for searching for answers on the Internet - aptly named Yahoo! Answers. Yahoo! allows you to ask a question (in a very Jeeves like way) and it returns answers in a different format than a normal search engine does. The interface is very easy to use and the random questions that show up are actually slightly interesting.

I'm not sure where Yahoo! is going with this, but I do see the need to make searching on the Internet easier. I would hazard a guess that 90% of Google users don't even know the syntax needed to create most searches accurately (hey, sometimes I don't even remember all the search functions available) and an "English Query" will be needed as more and more less computer savvy users take on the Internet.
