Former Yahoo Kevin Cheng notes that Yahoo has introduced a feature called "radial search," which allows users to search for businesses within a specified area. Wholly unremarkable, except for this: Cheng says he designed the feature in early 2006, and it's taken two years to come to fruition. Google would simply launch the feature; Microsoft would throw programmers at it until it got done. No wonder why Microsoft wants to buy Yahoo, and Jerry Yang wants it to pay a higher price for his creation. Who knows how much buried treasure lies within Yahoo, waiting for competent technical management to dig it up and bring it to market? (Screenshot by kev/null)
