Yahoo! brings its Mail, Contacts, Instant Messaging and Calendar Sync to Apple’s New OSX Lion Operating System
If you’re purchasing a shiny new MacBook with the latest OS X Lion just released you’ll find a seamless integration with some of your favorite Yahoo! products. On OS X Lion, the first time you open up your Mail application, Lion will ask if you’d like to setup your Yahoo! account. Once set up, you will have access to your Yahoo! Mail, Yahoo! Contacts, Yahoo! Calendar, and Yahoo! Messenger (embedded in iChat) services. Here’s a bit more details on how the individual Yahoo! products play with the new operating system:
Yahoo! Mail: Send mail to your friends directly from Apple’s Mail application. With our Mail service you can access your entire mailbox and carry it anywhere you go. Read email on the web, on your phone, or on your MacBook and they all stay in sync.
Yahoo! Contacts: Yahoo! is the only partner that supports the tight contacts service integration with OS X. All the contacts in your Yahoo! Contacts automatically flow down to your MacBook. The contacts you add to your Apple Address Book are automatically backed up to Yahoo!.
Yahoo! Calendar: Using Yahoo! Calendar with Apple’s iCal service enables you to streamline your life effortlessly. Share calendars with your family and stay in sync with them across your Apple devices or other Yahoo! Calendar enabled devices.
Yahoo! Messenger: Quickly chat realtime with your friends using Apple’s iChat product shipped with OS X. See which of your Yahoo! Messenger friends are online and reach out to them right from your computer.
Set up Yahoo! services on OS X Lion and instantly make your MacBook yours. Carry your information anywhere you go, and never lose your data backed up by Yahoo!’s cloud services.
