More deals have been hammered out in the search engine industry. Yahoo! has announced that it has replaced Digital's Altavista search technology with Inktomi's, for use within its directory of Internet sites. Inktomi has been successful in its partnerships since it won awards last year for the HotBot search engine, designed by Wired Online and powered by Inktomi's search engine. Since then it has won deals with the likes of CNet and Microsoft to provide search services on their pages. Yahoo! has also joined its rivals Infoseek, Lycos and Excite to team up with AT&T. Under the terms of the deal, AT&T will be able to resell its phone services on Yahoo!, and Yahoo! users in the US will benefit from lower call charges with AT&T. Earlier this month, AT&T teamed up with Lycos to offer a Lycos front-end to its AT&T WorldNet Service, and Yahoo! made a similar deal with MCI.
