In the latest of Yahoo's developments is news of Yahoo! oneSearch integrating Wikipedia in its results.

"Yahoo! is giving mobile search results a boost by integrating Yahoo! Answers and Wikipedia content into Yahoo! oneSearch results (available in 18+ countries, including all of North America, the UK, a variety of other European, Latin American, and Asian countries). In recent months, Yahoo! has added to the functionality of the oneSearch experience in an effort to deliver instant answers and relevant results to consumers on the go. With this latest addition, Yahoo! is augmenting its mobile search product with community-based information from the largest knowledge-sharing community and reference site on the Web. When you search for opinions or recommendations from others, such as 'What is the best apartment dog?,' you'll see a cluster of Yahoo! Answers results. And for factual queries like '2008 Summer Olympics,' your oneSearch results will show content from Wikipedia as well to give you a little something extra to chew on.

Yahoo! also rolled out flight information search today, so flight status, times, gates, etc., are all accessible on your mobile. If you search 'United Airlines 90' or 'UA 90' (or any other airline and flight) through oneSearch, you're presented with a quick snapshot of the flight information. You can try it out here."

Take that, Google!
