Yahoo announced that they've now included the Babel Fish translation tool directly on Yahoo. This tool was the only reason that I'd visit Alta Vista (and not that often), now that it's on Yahoo there's no need to ever go there again... and to think it wasn't that long ago that Alta Vista was one of the 'big guns' in the Search Engine space...

If you've never heard of Babel Fish, it's a handy tool for translating text from one language to another, although you can get some interesting results by translating from English to another language, then back to English again...

i.e. "It was a dark and stormy night" translated to japanese, then back to English now reads as "That was dark, it was the stormy night"
