    • Bob de'Long: Furniture can still be found when rearranged. A percentage of tools, kitchen stuff, and office stuff is lost when "rearranged." -

    • SA Eli Hoffmann: I don't like it. Feels like it would have been cutting edge about 10 years ago.

    • Tom Guttenberger: Change can be tough to adjust to. But in 2 weeks no one will remember what the old one looked like and the impact tweaks will take hold.

    • Jason Aycock: (asked somewhat in jest, as a thought experiment) What's a homepage?

    • Joe Springer: Seems more like a newspaper page now, not drastic, still feels "Yahoo-ee"

    • David Jackson: Thanks everyone so far. Does the new homepage make you more or less confident about Marissa Mayer's makeover of $YHOO?

    • Joe Springer: Cramer pointed out AOL is finally alive and he likes the NYT, for me I just can't get excited about a general news site model.

    • Joe Springer: I do like the finance videos with Lauren Lyster - they have some original content ala the Times, they need more to differentiate I think.

    • chuck holladay: The Finance page does not seem to have changed. The homepage seems to run on forever with articles thrown together randomly.

    • Mercy Jimenez: David agree w/ so-so assessm; B4 putting on the glitz w/Homepage staff should QC 4content/feeds; I never go into $YHOO Finance Page ...

    • Mercy Jimenez: ... e.g. yields on monthly div distributors is wrong often; found accuracy is suspect more often than SA, Bloomberg, Reuters etc.

    • Joe Springer: Yahoo Finance: message boards changed since Mayer and they are embarrassingly bad now. Every other comment is a complaint about the new MB.
