Yahoo!: Users don't want to search. They want answers

Wired: Yahoo wants to kill the 10 blue links. The company thinks its customers don’t care how many pages a search engine indexes — nor do they want to search. They want answers.

At least, that’s what Prabhakar Raghavan, who heads Yahoo Labs and Yahoo Search Strategy told a group of reporters Tuesday at a briefing about Yahoo’s future in search.

Unfortunately, Yahoo had no real innovation to show off — just some better-integrated results and talks of search becoming smarter.
