New pests: featured news

Seems it is a new trend for service oriented sites to push at the top of their service a list of featured news they decided you want to see.

  • LinkedIn Pulse: 
  • my.yahoo aggregated home page now headlines featured news. 
    • In their tablet oriented redesign you can't have closed gadgets anymore either.
    • Time to move on: I relocated my home page to igHome. Liking it: good service with plenty of gadgets. They have tabbed aggregator pages  (which comes close to closed gadgets).
