Yahoo’s secret: A start page with email?

Maybe I’m missing something — and it’s possible that there were magical elements in Jerry Yang’s CES talk about Yahoo’s new strategy that I have failed to comprehend — but it sounds like the big vision for the future of the Web giant is a “start” page for the Internet, with enhanced email. Oh yes, and maps. Colour me unimpressed. Isn’t this just the same old “portal” strategy from Yahoo’s distant past, dressed up in new Web 2.0 clothes? And most of it isn’t even here yet. Lame.
