    Exclamation Yahoo! and Google together - the weirdest thing ever!

    I have a "Google Accounts" page in my Yahoo! Messenger's ads place!!!

    I have attached some pictures of this cataclysmic event.

    No Photoshop involved! I've scrolled through there by selecting text. It was like an iframe, but right-click and scrolling were not doing anything.

    Isn't it wierd?

    Are Google and Yahoo like this: ? Is it just an internal bug on my PC?

    If you think Google doesn't advertise on Yahoo! and vice versa then you need to learn the art of marketing

    Can you rule out that this is not a phising attack on your yahoo mesenger? It seems a bit suspicious as if it is targeting users that already have a Google account rather than attract new users.

    Yahoo was one of the original investors in Google, I believe they may still own a sizeable portion of it (although... they may have sold their stake a few years ago, memory is fuzzy).
