Yahoo hit with $2.7 billion judgment by Mexico court

The ruling in a case involving a yellow-pages listing service is not final, and Yahoo plans to appeal it

A court in Mexico has entered a US$2.7 billion judgment against Yahoo in a breach-of-contract suit over a yellow-pages listing service.

The 49th Civil Court of the Federal District of Mexico City issued the non-final judgment against Yahoo and Yahoo de Mexico in a case brought by Worldwide Directories and Ideas Interactivas, Yahoo announced on Friday. Yahoo said the plaintiffs' claims are without merit and it will appeal the judgment.

Worldwide Directories and Ideas Interactivas claimed breach of contract, breach of promise and lost profits in the case, which involved contracts related to a listing service.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
