According to the data, Google got between zero and 999 FISA requests every six months since 2009 for both content and non-content data.

That's an interesting coincidence.  I got to sleep with the CEO of Yahoo somewhere between 0 and 999 times in that same period.

Since the government thinks this is an acceptable way to report on national security matters I would like to let them know I have planted between 0 and 999 bombs.

Yahoo! and Facebook spill the beans, too

Did they italicize the exclamation mark? I didn't know that was a part of the Yahoo trademark.

Do you mind if I Google myself in your office?

Arkanaut: Yahoo! and Facebook spill the beans, too

Did they italicize the exclamation mark? I didn't know that was a part of the Yahoo trademark.


Yahoo! is trademarked with an exclamation point to make sure that you don't confuse them with the Yahoo-brand kayak that is no longer produced by Old Town Canoe.  Or with the EBSCO Industries' Yahoo-brand barbecue sauce which seems to have been produced by a division that may or may not exist anymore.

The Register is just mocking their latest change to the logo, but they have been rigorously adhering to their trademark for years.

/The expression "Yahoo!" is a registered trademark of Yahoo!, Inc., for use on computer services, namely, creating indexes of information, sites, and other resources available on computer networks; searching and retrieving information, sites, and other resources available on computer networks for others; providing an online link to news, weather, sports, current events, and reference materials. The use of the identical expression in this post is not intended to indicate an association with or sponsorship by Yahoo!, Inc., nor is it intended to disparage their fine products.

The numbers show the number of user content requests under FISA orders has been steadily increasing since 2009.

Back then, Google was ordered to hand over user content for between 2,000 and 2,999 users, but that this had more than doubled by 2010 and has been trending steadily upwards
