My Yahoo upgrade coming soon

Yahoo will upgrade its My Yahoo personalized home page in the coming weeks, the company's CEO said

Yahoo's My Yahoo service, which lets users aggregate content and services on a single Web page, will soon get a significant upgrade, the company's chief executive officer said Tuesday.

The enhancement to My Yahoo is part of the company's continued emphasis on giving its users tools to personalize their Internet experience, said CEO Terry Semel at the Morgan Stanley Technology Conference in San Francisco, which was webcast.

"In the next few weeks, you'll see My Yahoo take on a new form and a new shape," Semel said. "We've been working on it for some time."

My Yahoo was launched in July 1996, and as such is a precursor to the many customizable Web pages and personalization services that came later and are a standard feature of many news sites and consumer and enterprise portals.

At My Yahoo, people can access services like Yahoo Mail and choose, to an extent, the types of news, information and sources that get featured on the page.

Some of My Yahoo's most recent enhancements, introduced over two years ago, include support for content syndication feeds like RSS and Atom and a version for mobile devices.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
