  2. 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.

  4. Allow Saving Tech Articles

    I was trying to save a few articles that I wanted to read so I could read them later, but there was not a save button as there was in the other sections of the website where there are articles. Could you please add the Save button? Thanks

    Let us turn annoying animated gifs off if we prefer.

  6. Titles and text are not visible over the tiles

    Don't overlay the text over pictures - it doesn't work. Even advertisement shows blue-on-blue - what will your sponsors think about this?

  7. Looks like Fickr –not too convenient for reading tech news

    The pager looks like flickr web pages and it works for presenting photographs. However when you want to read tech news it looks attractive for the first 2 minutes but after that get tired of endless scrolling.

    If you want to stick to this style at least give an option to sort by date/publication time and date marker will be helpful.

  8. make every gif pausable

    just a little pause button on the corner there. i'm sure you guys have that technology. you won't be compromising the design you've invested in - just making it possible for people to pause images they find distracting

  9. Please. Please! Have a user switchable DARK THEME option.

    Be that one awesome site that allows users to switch to a dark theme (black background with white text) to save our eyes from all the strain of looking at a predominantly bright white screen all the time.
    Reading on LED screens and smartphones (in darker environments) can be so much easier on the eyes (and BATTERIES) if the page being viewed had a black background.
    Do please look into this. It will be a big +

  10. I'd like the site to remember what I've seen and either gray it out or, better, hide it or push it down the page.

    Grey out or hide news items that I've already seen. Remember that I have viewed them, across devices.
