In a kind of strange synergistic occurance, both Evan DiBiase over at 32584.com and I have been sleuthing (Evan’s “Nancy Drew” reference!) for new Yahoo!Sync references in OS X applications, specifically Address Book. My strings search (strings */Contents/MacOS/* | grep -i yahoo) found a good number of new Yahoo references, which you can examine after the jump. What’s more, Evan also found what completely escaped my notice: a Yahoo end-user licensing agreement in Address Book. (It’s in Contents/Resources/English.lproj/YEULA.html) Pop over to 32584.com to keep up to date on his discoveries.
