AOL vs Yahoo

Saw this on Techcrunch just now. LOL, so AOL have totally ripped off the new Yahoo site. How the hell did someone let this happen? Click the image below for a bigger version.

  • This is not called ripping off….this is called inspiration….lol

  • Or may be I think the designers at yahoo and aol bought the same template from an expensive design portal and used it…could be a possibility….

  • In most industries, products converge around a dominant design (dig out your strategy textbook)!
    There must be an optimum design for websites and portals, based on research of how people use these sites, so maybe that’s what we’re seeing. Alternatively, somebody might have been a bit keen to get to the pub on a Friday night, and just thought “Sod it, this will do.”
