  1. Stop allowing pop-ups to block articles, pictures, or videos. It's rude !

    Pop up ads should never block articles or pictures accompanying articles. It actually creates a negative reaction, and makes people resent the product being advertised. It is rude to pop up right in the middle of reading or watching something. Like butting in on a conversation. Impolite. Bad manners. Annoying. Please, cut it out !

  2. Stop pop ups

    Things I'd like to see excluded: No More
    1) "sponsored" pseudoscientific articles from climate denial to fad diets.
    2) sensationalistic headlines leading to one sentence articles.
    3) pop ups
    4) layers and layers of pages I need to click through with deceptive icons that lead to advertisements
    5) Headlines that have nothing to do with content. Like "Huckabee clarifies remarks" leading to an article where he does precisely the opposite.
    6) auto play

  4. LEAVE THE FINANCIAL PAGE ALONE!

    Sorry, all I can think of are invectives, expletives and coprolalia.

  5. Apple vs FBI over Backdoor

    Hi,

    It appears that something significant is overlooked in the heated debates about the backdoor.

    The recent models of iPhone and many other smart devices already have an effective backdoor, namely, a fingerprint scanner or a set of camera and software for capturing faces, irises and other body features which are easily collected from the unyielding, sleeping, unconscious and dead people. .

    Leading media like you could advocate some or all of the following recommendations towards the readers.


    • The vendors of those smart devices who are conscious of privacy and security of consumers could tell the consumers not to turn…

  7. Stop spamming yourself with your own ads!

    Very annoyed that I can't even read yahoo articles without yahoo ads for other articles popping up. STOPP SPAMMING YOURSELF. We're already on Yahoo we get it, you want us to use Yahoo. I couldn't even read the live blog because of so many ads! Gosh.

  8. create an option on the toolbar to allow clients to delete all adds and popups

    why not install an option for clients like a button or a feedback option to correct technical problems etc on toolbar.

  10. Get rid of the fixed header! it's HUGE and takes up so much space when I scroll

    I want to read the content. Not the header. It's too big to be fixed to the top. It blocks too much of the articles.

  12. Report Button

    Articles are being posted with questionable reputability and intent.

    Here is an example of one such article, which is advertising 3rd-party software for home router configuration:

    https://www.yahoo.com/tech/s/now-secure-home-wi-fi-network-just-one-190600114.html

    The article is so offensive, that it has received nothing but negative feedback in the comments section. One such statement, is that the article itself is "Dishonest and unethical."

    This led me to realize that Yahoo! articles do not have a REPORT function. This is crucial for user feedback, and expresses a level of unprofessionalism on Yahoo! News's part. There should be no excuse not to provide users with a way to contribute…

  13. Replace the annoying tiles with a text list of headlines, organized by category.

    Get rid of the useless, horrible tile interface!!! Replace it with a text list of headlines, organized by category. Minimize graphics. Make it very obvious which articles are videos (so I can avoid those and read only the text articles) Not a tiny play icon in the corner of a graphic. Better yet, have separate pages for text and video news.

  14. Clean up of the visual garbage dump of the tech section. Text is fine.

    The Tech section is a visual disaster. Unreadable. disorganized, random, unpredictable, unnavigable, and nauseating (literally, it causes motion sickness). It looks like a five year old child's room after a sleepover where everyone got sick. It is as bad as nbcnews.com. Please just show the headlines and if absolutely necessary, a SMALL picture to go along with the article.

  15. annoying pop period pop-ups may have get you before deletion.

    Maybe advertisements can be in a corner so you can still see the info. These annoying ads & such I've seen take up the whole page. My friend inn Georgia is angry. ....and she doesn't have that quantity. Too much.....TOO MUCH POPUPS & ADS!

  16. Pages with a wall view need an option to see them as a list view

    The page https://www.yahoo.com/tech has a wall view, hard to scan with eye issues. Please make a list option like the view on the health page

  17. 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.

  18. First thing, I am not a Yahoo Tech reader. But I REALLY like the new Tech page in terms of format and content. The new format

    Need to be able to have a preference for Simplified/Classic format and the new format.

    First thing, I am not a Yahoo Tech reader. But I REALLY like the new Tech page in terms of format and content at times. The new format is nice as the world goes to tablets and touch screens.It is nice not to have to hit the back button.

    But when you are not on a high speed network, (most of the time I am,) a more simpler pages are preferred.

    If I'm at work, the network is slow due to a lot of security…
