Yahoo! Update

Above is a photo of Yahoo!'s founders David Filo and Jerry Yang unveiling the redesign to the Yahoo! homepage. The new design is more then cosmetic. It provides for many personalization options (see "personal assistant" and "page options"). It also has more interactive features, reducing the need to click through to other pages such as news, weather, email etc. The search box is also more prominent. Another addition is Yahoo Pulse, which offers recommendations and information about cultural trends pulled from the searches of millions of Yahoo! users. Sounds like that "database of our intentions" concept again....

I am a big fan of Yahoo! and like both the look and feel of these changes. Please let me know what you think.
