Yahoo and Google, vive la difference

Michael Liedtke has an AP article on the differences between Yahoo and Google:
    Google ... is devoted to ... transforming the way the world finds and stores information, even if that means sending people somewhere else.

    Yahoo ... strives to be all things for all people — a one-stop destination for recreation, work and research.

    Google ... takes a ... laissez faire approach toward innovation, embracing new ideas and products long before the company's management figures out how everything fits into the overall business plan.

    Yahoo takes a more practical approach to technology, first identifying what people want and then building or buying a product designed to give visitors one less reason to leave its Web site.
