Yahoo's adding anti-spyware from PestPatrol to it's toolbar. This is a nice move; it's something that speaks to the evolving dot-com value equation - and it actually solves a big part of it. This is doing what toolbars were supposed to: slash the transaction costs of surfing the web.

But I still have a suspicion they'll find a way to destroy this value, by making this feature so inaccessible, or difficult to use - they'll find a way to pile transaction costs on top of it - that's their core incompetence.
