Yahoo announced some exciting new changes to some of their most famous products like Flickr, Mail, Weather, the Homepage and Search. Sadly, any time an ISP announces an “exciting new change” the only thing I jump for is my Pepto on the top shelf, no jumping for joy here.
Yahoo is set to release all inactive Yahoo ID’s (also used as email addresses) from the past 12 months and pool them back into the system. New users may now have the opportunity to simpler ID’s, gone are the days of firstname.lastname@example.org.

Users looking to claim a new yahoo ID can do so as of July 15. However, users will only get confirmation as of August 15.
