Do *you* Yahoo?

John posted an interesting table showing how the various parts of Yahoo rank.

I looked down the list and, frankly, the only service of Yahoo’s that I still use is Flickr

Once upon a time, I swore by Yahoo’s email service.  Loved it – until someone figured out a way to hack into it and Yahoo just threw up their hands and said “sorry about that”.  So, other than Flickr, Yahoo has simply become a once-run – a has-been – for me.

But, for me, the same holds true for Google services – though I suspect I’m a rare case.  The only Google service I still use is the email news alerts, which, yes, is still in beta though its been around for several years.

So do *you* Yahoo?  Which Yahoo services do you use?
