Week in Tech History – 4-20-09 – Do You Yahoo?

Apr. 25th, 1996 was the day that Yahoo started putting ads on TV. They ran a spot on David Letterman, Saturday Night Live and episodes of Star Trek asking one question – Do you Yahoo?
The successful ad campaign spawned many a version of that commercial. Ultimately they dropped the question and just had the Yodel “Yahoo!” on the commercials run.
Other items of note: Windows XP64 and Windows server 2003 were released. Dell says they’ll put on XP after the June 30th cut off date and Gateway 2000 drops the ‘2000’. Lots more on the Quickcast.
