Submission + - Yahoo issued a patent that can kill Google.

RembrandtX writes: "Yahoo recently received an issued patent that firmly stakes claims on any online, customizable feed readers and AJAX template websites. Google's success with Personalized Home Pages with integrated GMail, Google Maps is clearly a firm target and if history is any indication, Yahoo may seek another ownership stake in Google. Yahoo's new patent has far reaching implications for web developers interested in providing online, customizable websites with real-time information. Assuming this is a valid patent, Yahoo is going to have to make a choice between developers and shareholders. More coverage at PatentMonkey."
