Yahoo Search Now Being Integrated Into Adobe Products
Yahoo and Adobe are expected to announce tomorrow a partnership that will place Yahoo search tools into Adobe's core product, Acrobat. Under the agreement, the next time users upgrade their version of the free Adobe Reader, they "can choose to install" a Yahoo / Adobe toolbar that includes Yahoo search, as well as links to Adobe subscription services, and a feature that converts web pages into PDF files. Thus, another shot is fired in the search engine wars' battle for offline content. One can only hope users will be asked to install the toolbar, not forced to.
