Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
What can’t you do with Yahoo!? Not much. For the proof, check out Yahoo! Hacks.

You may know Yahoo! can track your investments. Did you know you can download Yahoo!’s stock data straight into Excel? For that matter, did you know Yahoo! will tell you everything that’s on your TV next Tuesday night, whether you’ve got cable, satellite, or rabbit ears?

You know you should get your Yahoo! Mail addresses into your Address Book. Do you know how to automate that? Or that Yahoo! lets you export bookmarks to HTML, so you can share your favorite sites on your blog? Or that Yahoo! has a “creative commons” search for images you can reuse without getting sued? Or that you can program Yahoo! with everything from PHP to REBOL? There’s a lot you didn’t know about Yahoo! -- stuff you’ll have a blast discovering. Bill Camarda, from the December 2005 Read Only

    YAHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!: THE FINAL FRONTIER OF HACKS!

    If you're not very knowledgeable on how to use, expand, personalize, and tweak Yahoo!, this book is for you! Author Paul Bausch, has done an outstanding job of writing a book that will help you do just that, in ways you never dreamed possible. Bausch, begins by showing you how to become a Yahoo! power searcher by taking advantage of meta keywords in order to return more relevant results. Then, he shows you some unique ways on how to use Yahoo! Web Services, including monitoring your commute for problems, watching TV schedules automatically for appearances by your favorite celebrities, and visualizing your music collection. The author continues by showing you how to use the hacks to reach out and touch someone. Next, he introduces you to the backdoor that Yahoo! has opened for developers. Then, the author shows you how people are using Yahoo! data in their own applications and have a bit of fun in the process. Finally, he shows you how to get listed and introduces you to other Yahoo! components you can plug into your site. You can read this excellent book from cover to cover if you like, but each hack stands on its own. Here, the author intends to show you what's possible when you view Yahoo! as a platform and inspire your inner hacker to take a new look at Yahoo!.
