NOT CES 2008: Yahoo!'s web Finds of the Year


yahoo-finds-of-year-2007.jpgSilly old Yahoo! decided to send out a press release about its 2007 ‘best of the web’ awards today. Probably no one else will notice, what with the billions of press releases about TVs and mobile phones and robots and five-for-one HD DVD deals flying about the place at the moment.

But WE noticed.

Yahoo! has come up with this list of what it calls the “Finds of the Year 2007” – basically a self-promoting little ready-made feature for bloggers like us to slot in among the billions of updates about new kinds of Bravia we’re all hammering out today.

World Reviewer won for best Travel site, for example, with Move Me getting the nod as best for innovation. Voting for the People’s Choice part of the festivities is open for another week or so. The Shiny Media site about handbags is one of the People’s Choice options, if you’ve got a few seconds spare and fancy making some girls in the office get excited and jump up and down and screech a bit.
