    Why would anybody want to add Yahoo to their desk top?

    Heck, all you have to do is type Yahoo into the browser. For that matter, my browser has a Yahoo link built in although I prefer not to show it most of the time.

    For that matter, why would anybody use a search box on a web site?

    Oh boy I would *NOT* like to be these people when Yahoo! finds out about the way their trademark is being used.

    Basically, it's a bit underhand. They are using the Yahoo! name to get you to install a search box thingy like this one which is Yahoo! on the top and their own affiliate store underneath.

    The affiliate store is not connected with Yahoo! in any way - basically it looks like a pretty lame program that would run into huge legal trouble.

    More affiliates wanting to be merchants coming out smelling like lame affiliates. Same guys who still wish for CPC affiliate deals so they can unleash their latest rev 4.5 of the clickautomizer
