YAHOO AND MICROSOFT INSTANT MESSENGERS TO INTERACT

It’s not confirmed yet but rumor has it that Microsoft and Yahoo will announce a deal on Wednesday for their respective instant messenger programs to exchange messages with each other.

If you’re under 25, that might be a big deal – running AIM, Yahoo, and MSN messengers means three different screen names, three different passwords, three different programs to keep onscreen simultaneously, making it almost impossible to find room onscreen for homework. This could be a big deal for you. It might not be quite as important for grownups.
