Yahoo has launched a new service that enables cell phones and TVs to use its web services similarly to the way PCs now do.
The products include Yahoo Go Mobile and Yahoo Go TV. A third product, Yahoo Go Desktop, will tie the phone and TV services back to the most common way of using Yahoo services, which far and away remains the personal computer.
The phone service is a logical extension of Yahoo's efforts to become a standard channel on mobile phone screens instead of being available only on special phones via Web browsers.
The television plan, which represents a far more ambitious and early-stage effort, will target consumers buying PC-linked TVs with fast Internet connections
