Have you missed seeing Yahoo's distinctive billboard while driving along San Francisco's piece of Interstate 80? So has Yahoo. After a 4-year hiatus, the internet giant is bringing back its iconic signage to "surprise and delight" (read: advertise to) commuters heading toward the Bay Bridge. Unfortunately, though, it's not going to maintain the same 1960s motel charm that you remember. The whimsical design you see above has been replaced by the slightly lifeless billboard pictured below, at least for now. Still, this is both a good way to mark Yahoo's 20th anniversary and remind locals that Google isn't the only '90s-era web pioneer in town.
