Citing a jump in complaints about hacked accounts, BT is abandoning Yahoo Mail (YHOO) as the e-mail platform for its broadband services in favor of home-grown BT Mail. 6M Yahoo Mail accounts will be migrated. Meanwhile, Tumblr continues to roll out fresh ad formats. A month after adding sponsored posts (similar to Facebook's Sponsored Stories) to its mobile apps, Tumblr has brought them to its Web dashboard; initial partners include Ford, AT&T, and Viacom. Marissa Mayer has stated Tumblr could see premium and retargeted ads, and Tumblr CEO David Karp has touted his service's potential to enable "creative brand advertising" that breaks traditional display ad molds.

    I can attest to having my Yahoo account hacked in March.

     

    Maybe Meyer shouldn't be so quick to be anti-$BBRY when she can't even keep her own house secure.

    As a shareholder of Yahoo and a believer in what Ms Mayer is doing with the company, I do also believe security should be a major focus for concern. As a single parent and a paying member of a couple dating sites, I find it very alarming when one of the first messages I receive is for me to accept them and contact them in Yahoo messaging. Major red flags.
