Yahoo opens up music site
Yahoo is planning on allowing information from outside services including iTunes and Amazon.com to be featured on its music site, according to Reuters. This is a step in the broader plan of opening up its sites to content from beyond Yahoo's own portfolio. The company plans to publish partner content on its popular news page, along with opening up its email system to include functions like Netflix.
Some of the other company developments have brought attention recently, including the controversial advertising partnership with its primary competitor, Google. The deal is being reviewed by the Justice Department. Yahoo will also be expanding content on its mobile and television services. The company recently signed a contract with AT&T to become its default mobile browser (excluding iPhone).
