A look at two Yahoo! technologies.

BOSS (Build your Own Search Service) aims to incorporate a vertical search on proprietary content and an overall search ecosystem into its current search product. Leveraging off of the Yahoo! search technologies, BOSS allows developers to create truly unique search experiences and provide rich metrics for users.

YQL (Yahoo! Query Language) allows users to leverage off of existing content and APIs on the internet to build rich table and data structures. Allowing users to wrap their own data into tables (Open Data Tables) and providing server-side JavaScript data manipulation (YQL Execute), YQL is the last API you will ever need.
