  1. Press releases appearing in Zed

    I'm starting to see press releases show up directly in Zed again. There's probably a debate to be had about whether they belong, but my vote as a user is that they detract from the experience (plus, we're essentially giving companies free advertising): http://z9.yahoo.com/Canada/xeomin-cosmetic-clostridium-botulinum-neurotoxin-125800851.html

  2. Can the font size be adjustable?

    Could the font size be adjustable so we can enlarge it (temporarily) or make it smaller...for easier readability...like we can adjust it on the e-readers?

  4. Clicking outside of the top panel area should close the top drawer

    I shouldn't have to click the upper-left icon to close the drawer; clicking the content area below the drawer should do it.

  5. We should show tweets by hashtag indexing

    Twitter is a a rich source of timely information on a diverse set of well-tagged info:

  6. Sources

    I'm not sure how many sources this app uses, but I believe the more, the better. On my tech page, I've got three stories all related to Sony's profits this quarter and while from different sources, they're all pretty much the same thing. Maybe adding more sources will help diversify content and prevent this sort of thing?

  8. Layout

    Hi,
    Here are a few observations:
    - Are you planning to add a "X" in the right edge of each article you dont find relevant? Hopefully that would then mean I would start to get less of those types of articles.

    - To me there is way too much text, its overwhelming. There should be alot more images so that you dont have to read 10 article titles on a page to find out which one you want to click on. The only tiles my eyes are drawn to are the ones with images. Also, for certain categories like "food…

  9. can we minimize the categories by just clicking the mouse on any part of the screen?

    instead of having to click again on the four-boxed symbols on the upper left hand corner of the article.

  10. Add dictionary?

    Is it possible to add a dictionary feature? Or a "search the Internet" box in the article page?

  11. Might be nice to add a "Read next similar article" button

    A button that leads to the next article in the same category that I just read.

  12. Thumped down articles should disappear.

    When I thump down something I don't want to see it anymore. There could be a safeguard in a way, like a trash can. Would also be nice to just click, pull, and drop (or swipe, depending on device) what you don't like to see.

  13. Can the articles be saved in a personal folder

    Could the articles be saved in a personal folder, or sub-folders, grouped by "collections"/interests so we can build our own knowledge base over time? Like...building a foto album?

  14. I want to be able to highlight a set of words and add them to my interests

    while on an article, I want to be able to click and drag to highlight some text and then an option will pop up to add that text string as an interest, or find other articles that match that text string.

  16. We need mechanism to prevent display of articles over and over

    I've been presented with this article over and over starting last week:
    http://z9.yahoo.com/home/power-walking-falls-between-ramble-race-152329964--spt.html

    I have thumbed-down the sarticle multiple times, but it keeps showing up in my top stories feed. We need to prevent stories that have already been seen from displaying to users. High churn is crucial for today's fast-paced audience.

  17. Same article from Lifestyle appears twice

    Headlines/articles should be de-duped if two news services pick up the same story (parents slap their children in public more often than previously thought)

  19. Functionality: A 'refresh' button?

    Currently, with the design as it is, it's really hard to tell if I have the most current articles and information available for my interests. Something like a 'refresh' button or 'last updated' indicator or some such would help clarify that part of the experience for me. The general sense of time in the reader is that data is scattered and articles that are several days old are nudged right up with articles that are an hour old. More clarity is needed.

  20. Related to rearranging tiles - can we have a 'trash can' to drag and drop unwanted articles?

    I'd like to be able to, in addition to thumb out and thumb down, be able to literally trash articles that don't interest me or that are too old to clear space for new ones. Drag and drop to a trashcan icon (maybe at top bar?) would be clear. The 'personal folder' could be in the top bar also.
