Ticker Time Bomb

Yahoo has launched a downloadable tool to put your MyYahoo on your desktop.

Check out the product pitch:

- Choose from over 250,000 RSS feeds covering virtually everything on the Web

- Use your existing My Yahoo! settings to track your stocks, news, and weather

- Search the Web using Yahoo! Search directly from your desktop

Interesting. The battle for your desktop real estate will take many forms. I’m guessing that the use of RSS for news and stock information is just an early hook. People will include their photos from Yahoo photos, etc?

Concentration is important!
