Yahoo! snags Gateway start page

Published on .

Just as its relationship with Compaq Computer Corp. draws to a close, Yahoo! will have a presence on Gateway computers starting Feb. 5. Select computer models will be sold with a Gateway My Yahoo! start page preset as the default home page for subscribers.

The service allows users to personalize their home pages with news, sports, financial and local weather information. The page also has a customized customer service area for Gateway customers. Last month, Compaq said it would replace a customized My Yahoo! start page with a personalized service from AltaVista, which is now a wholly owned subsidiary of Compaq.
