Apr. 25th, 1996 was the day that started putting ads on TV. They ran a spot on , and episodes of asking one question – Do you Yahoo?

The successful spawned many a version of that commercial. Ultimately they dropped the question and just had the Yodel “Yahoo!” on the run.

Other items of note: XP64 and 2003 were released. says they’ll put on XP after the June 30th cut off date and Gateway 2000 drops the ‘2000’. Lots more on the Quickcast.
