"The change occurred at 9:30 p.m. PST Tuesday when Yahoo re launched the search properties for its U.S.-based sites, including its flagship home page. Yahoo replaced Google's results with its own Yahoo Search Technology, which combines an array of recently acquired search technologies, such as Inktomi and commercial search provider Overture Services. Yahoo also owns AltaVista and the Web search technology of Fast Search and Transfer.

Despite the publicity fanfare, Yahoo already started using its own search technology this week, as previously reported by CNET"
