  1. Make that “Yahoo in fact has a lot more interesting technologies than Google…”

  3. Silverlight, Flash or Android? That is the question.

    As a developer, I would rather develop for Silverlight because .Net allows me to use any language I choose (IronPython is my favorite). .Net’s multi-language support works today and works well.

    Flash is my next choice, because it is very well entrenched almost everywhere and AVM2 has a decent API. Actionscript/Javascript is a decent language, but it definitely loses out to being able to choose whatever language you want. In fact, it is Actionscript/Flash/Flex that I am learning and planning to deploy on right now because I am still waiting for Silverlight to mature.

    Android would be my last choice, I find its design to be a rather uninspired clobbering together of existing technologies. Don’t let the “Google” branding fool you, Google’s only real success so far has been its search engine. Even Gmail still trails Yahoo significantly.

    Yahoo in fact has a lot more interesting technologies than Gmail (example their widget technology and YUI) that just don’t get much press.
