Yahoo! is moving agressively beyond the browser and the desktop as part of an apparent strategy to be the most useful information and lifestyle management service around:
"Yahoo! seeks to provide online products and services essential to users€™ lives, and offers a full range of tools and marketing solutions for businesses to connect with Internet users around the world."
A series of back-to-back announcements show that Yahoo!'s making good on that statement. First there was Konfabulator (I've talked about that enough already), which extends search and services beyond the browser. Then there was the Motorola deal, baking Yahoo! services into its mobile devices. Now there's the Boeing in-flight announcement.
