Yahoo provides Realtime Data to Developers

Yahoo has started a new service giving access to its network of realtime data (is it a database or a network?) aka status updates. The service is called Yahoo Updates Firehose and giving developers access to the realtime data available to Yahoo. These data include data generated by users at Yahoo itself and by those services Yahoo has access to. For further information visit an article by ReadWriteWeb and the official announcement at the Yahoo Developer Blog.
