Yahoo's (YHOO) latest home page revamp, currently in trial mode, clearly has mobile in mind. A set of Windows 8-like photo tiles take up plenty of screen real estate, and Yahoo compensates by cutting down on icons, text links, and display ad modules. A previous test for Yahoo's home page, which gets 4.4B page views/month, involved a news feed that infinitely scrolls (much like Twitter). Separately, Yahoo disclosed in its Q3 10-Q it has bought back $212M in shares thus far in Q4, after buying $190M in Q3.

  • AAPL is going to be late to the game on live content home screens. Tim Cook can grumble all he wants about how Windows 8 is "confusing" but he can't ignore the trend.

  • I agree...Apple is too "closed architecture" minded and will try to impose its systems and designs until it goes back to its 5% global market share again. For now they have enjoyed the benefits of "changing the world" profits, but none of its products can be backed and supported by anyone except them and everybody is going choose the next best option again and support windows and android/chrome.

  • Looks like the "test drive" is over. Yahoo home page is same old thing this morining as it has always been.

     

    Until Yahoo changes its content, they will continue to be a tabloid web site.

     

    Not sure what this market current has to do with Apple, but I do agree with the opinions above.
