More iPhone/Yahoo Goodness

by Erica Sadun

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.

This might be worth playing with:


grep -rail yahoo /Applications /Library /System | egrep -vi '(da|Dutch|fi|French|German|Italian|Japanese|ko|no|pt|Spanish|sv|zh_CN|zh_TW)\.lproj'


That will scan *everything* for references to Yahoo, while filtering out the non-English localization bundles which will probably mostly be duplicates of the English language information.


Off the bat, I see mentions of "yahoo" in Address Book, iChat's help section, iPhoto (mention of http://search.yahoo.com/mrss), iWeb, Keynote, Pages, Safari, the Apache documentation, etc.


Admittedly, some of this was probably already there prior to 10.4.10, but still, this should be a good general way to get a list of files to inspect.

I see YahooSyncSupport
This makes me think defaults write com.apple.AddressBook YahooSyncSupport -bool true



However, that doesn't do anything. Oh well. Maybe it's time I installed F-Script.
