    We're doing it with bite size content, photos, and video, led by an all-star editorial team, she says.
  • Lynn La 1/7/2014 9:34:06 PM
    Yahoo Food will cull stories on the top food trends. As if my Facebook feed about cronuts, cakepops, and ramen burgers weren't enough.
  • Roger Cheng 1/7/2014 9:34:16 PM
    Digital magazines will be a core part of the Yahoo strategy.

    Tech columnist David Pogue will lead the tech digital magazine.
  • Roger Cheng 1/7/2014 9:34:39 PM
    David Pogue is on stage now.

    David Pogue takes the stage.

    Pogue makes a Google+ jab, that gets a few chuckles
  • Kent German 1/7/2014 9:36:46 PM
  • Lynn La 1/7/2014 9:37:00 PM

    A few questions Pogue gets on the daily. The first question sounds familiar.

  • Lynn La 1/7/2014 9:37:42 PM
    He says don't say "form factor," when you mean "size."
  • sarahtew 1/7/2014 9:38:01 PM
  • Roger Cheng 1/7/2014 9:38:10 PM
    Pogue starts listing off headlines from rival sites, and bashing them.
  • Roger Cheng 1/7/2014 9:38:16 PM
    He has a point.
  • Roger Cheng 1/7/2014 9:38:17 PM
    Wow, no CNET mention??
  • Roger Cheng 1/7/2014 9:38:18 PM
    We tend to use a lot of tech jargon here.
  • Lynn La 1/7/2014 9:38:20 PM
    Hey look, CNET's on his PowerPOint
  • Roger Cheng 1/7/2014 9:38:21 PM
    But CNET's pretty good about washing out most (not all) of the jargon from our coverage.
  • Roger Cheng 1/7/2014 9:38:27 PM
    The high end of tech enthusiasts are well covered.
  • Roger Cheng 1/7/2014 9:38:30 PM
    He looks the large middle 85% of normal people.
  • Roger Cheng 1/7/2014 9:38:35 PM
    Hey, CNET finally got a mention.
  • Roger Cheng 1/7/2014 9:38:44 PM
    He doesn't thi
  • Kent German 1/7/2014 9:38:44 PM
  • Roger Cheng 1/7/2014 9:38:57 PM
    He says nobody covers the 85% middle of the audience. I'm pretty sure CNET has a big chunk of that.
  • Roger Cheng 1/7/2014 9:39:11 PM
    If you're at CES, you're a gearhead, Pogue says. Good point.
  • Roger Cheng 1/7/2014 9:39:15 PM
    Pogue introduces Yahoo.com/tech
  • Roger Cheng 1/7/2014 9:39:24 PM
    It's absolutely gorgeous, he says. It works on a tile system.
  • Lynn La 1/7/2014 9:39:26 PM
    Every article is represented as a title and expands
  • Roger Cheng 1/7/2014 9:39:31 PM
    When you click on a tile, it expands.
  • Roger Cheng 1/7/2014 9:39:41 PM
    You never leave the home page, you go down and there are more stories.
  • sarahtew 1/7/2014 9:39:52 PM
  • Lynn La 1/7/2014 9:39:54 PM
    They'll have daily columnists, monday through friday
  • Roger Cheng 1/7/2014 9:39:56 PM
    Every article has its own URL, even if you're on the same page. You get daily columns.
  • Roger Cheng 1/7/2014 9:40:09 PM
    The design is pretty smart.
  • Kent German 1/7/2014 9:40:10 PM
  • Roger Cheng 1/7/2014 9:40:27 PM
    There are no display ads, he points out. He says it makes him very very happy.
  • Lynn La 1/7/2014 9:40:47 PM
    Anchor columnists (which they've "poached," says Pogue) include CNET alumn Rafe Needleman
  • Lynn La 1/7/2014 9:41:05 PM
    Pogue says they'll review kickstarter products, "Which no one else does."
  • Roger Cheng 1/7/2014 9:41:07 PM
    He lists off a bunch of columnists, including former CNETer Rafe Needleman.
  • Roger Cheng 1/7/2014 9:41:14 PM
    Yahoo will review kickstarter prototypes.
  • Kent German 1/7/2014 9:41:22 PM
  • Roger Cheng 1/7/2014 9:41:50 PM
    So you know whether to invest in it.

    Big red button app.
