Yahoo Tech

We have recently changed our product feedback forums to give more visibility to new feedback from our users. As part of this, we will aggregate issues by popularity rather than showing vote counts. We value your ideas and will continue to monitor the forums, actively, so please continue to share your product feedback with us.

How can we improve Yahoo Tech?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

    • By answering your callers calls is one. Because I'm not going to sit on this cheap iPhone to load the pointless stuff you guys have added.

      You guys can start by answering calls. I sat on the phone for about two hours. So I just started playing Xbox 3 hours later still nothing. It amazes me how such a big company can't manage all the fat ***** sitting around doing who knows what. You guys need to get with it. You may have tons of calls coming In at once but your a million dollar company that should have no excuse as to why I sat waiting for 3 and a half hours. I will be using another source for email considering my account was hacked…

      • Bring back the Comments section.

        Bring back the Comments section, not only for the TECH branch, but for all your new branches such as the FOOD branch. There must be an I.T. professional that you can hire somewhere out there than can do it in a week. Be a job creator! It can't be rocket science. Thanks!

          • Large images are not efficient. Take a lesson from NBCNews and base your layout on the type of reader viewing your webpage.

            Sure, large images which you can flip through are great for tablet readers or those with a mobile device, but for the majority of the desktops without touch screens the design is inefficient. YOU CAN determine the browser that is viewing your webpage and adjust your design based on this. Viewing large images for news is not efficient. NBCNews did the same thing and now a vast majority of people, including myself, no longer read the news there. Check out their Facebook page for the flood of comments based on this design if you need perspective.

                • Bring back simple summaries.

                  I've mostly stopped reading because the tiles make it harder to find relevant articles and slower to load.

                  • Stop that topstory slideshow

                    It is so incredibly annoying... I would love to actually read Yahoo Tech regularly, but everytime i open it, those huge panels slide every few seconds and it is 1) impossible to read those titles 2) super annoying, because they are so huge.

                    My solution is to scroll down so the newst stuff is out of screen, and then i can check out other stories.

                    If you really really want moving carousel, make it less terrible. Do a cross-dissolve or other less irritating animation.

                    • Weekly emails with link to latest Pogue articles

                      I subscribed to NY Times weekly tech emails and always looked forward to reading the latest Pogue review. Is there a way that I can get updated when there is a new article?

                      • Choose video quality manually.

                        As of now the video automatically adjusts to the internet speed. Would like to set the resolution of the video manually irrespective of what net speed i have. :)

                            • Way to much unnecessary graphics.

                              Yahoo Tech can be reduced to one page that I look at twice a day or I will have to search for an alternative and not see you at all.

                              • New Tech page - tiles are too big, lack text summary

                                If you must use tiles apply some HTML5 smarts. Pulse.com at least has size options. The new flipboard web format combines graphics and text. But the real wave of the future is something like NYT Skimmer where the viewer selects the graphics/text mix and employs horizontal page "scrolling". It will be difficult to trust Yahoo Tech if it can't walk the walk.

                                • How about pull your heads out? Graphics does not equate to meaning

                                  The new format is unreadable. You can't find articles without all the annoying graphics that detract from finding interesting headlines. This is yet another area where you're pushing people to leave your service. Brilliant.

                                      I think the tiles are to big you could put more content on a page or let me customize more.
