Yahoo Launches Digg-Like Suggestion Site Holy Kamoley! The whole internet is abuzz about Yahoo’s blatent rip off of Digg — how dare they think that they ought to be able to compete with digg.

Cory Bergman says people are PISSED OFF!

The thing looks just like digg. I mean the blue boxes, the voting, for a minute there I thought this was an April Fool’s joke. This is such a rip off that for a minute there I thought I was actually on digg itself. Somebody over there needs to get Jeremy Zawodny on the phone and damn quick.

What in world is going on over there at Yahoo? What’s next? Is Yahoo going to add two gg’s to the end of their name and start calling it Yahoogg?

I mean…

IMAGINE if someone tried to do this to them. Imagine for instance is someone built something that looked just like their beloved Flickr…

Oh,

wait a minute.

Bad example

Uhhhhhh… nevermind.

These are not the droids you are looking for…

Nothing to see here folks, move along.

    Now if Zooomr had built a music sharing site onto something that they were already doing, you might be on to something …

  3. I’m glad to see you’re not up in arms with the Digg cult on this one. This is certainly not a Digg competitor, so they should feel flattered.

    Im sure you got a lot of people’s blood pressure up in arms before your punchline, Mr. Hawk. ;)

    Kudos — since when did competition become a bad thing?
