Yahoo decides to revisit its 10-year-old calendar

We think there might be one or two people out there still using various Yahoo services as opposed to jumping on the Google train. You know, the same people who used to wear spiked dog collars in high school and get angry when their favorite Emo bands started to get popular. Well rebels, you’ll be glad to know that Yahoo has finally decided to end its decade-long hiatus in terms of calendar development and it is now testing out a shiny new Ajax-based online calendar. Honestly, the new drag and drop based interface is definitely sexy. No question. The Flickr integration is also very smooth and attractive. In terms of true added value above and beyond competitive offerings however, meh. This will basically be a nice add-on for those already swimming in the Yahoo pool but don’t expect the masses to come rushing over so they can enjoy, umm, pictures on their online calendars. If you’re a resident of the US, UK, India, Taiwan, or Brazil and you want to check out Yahoo’s new calendar beta, hit the read link and let us know what you think.
