For many years now, I've used My Yahoo for my personal home page; I tweaked it until it was completely MY My Yahoo.  It was portable (I worked from a LOT of different computers during this time) and very functional.  It was all but perfect.

Thank you so much, Yahoo, for killing all its usefulness to me.  The Yahoo Mail portion was bad enough; the remake of My Yahoo is designed to make desktop/laptop users crazy; now they are forcing my collection of Yahoo bookmarks into almost complete uselessness.

I guess I'm getting too old for the Internet because I don't WANT a smart phone or notebook or tablet to follow me everywhere I go.  Keyboards and mice have become too old fashioned.  Layouts are optimized for tiny displays and swiping.  Customization is virtually nil, at least so far as I've found.

And there's nowhere to go to regain my surfing feet.  Nowhere.

I'm getting too old.

I agree with you completely.

Yahoo went through and changed nearly everything, breaking most of it in the process. I even *have* a tablet (Ipad) and I gotta tell you that the changes are awful on that thing, too.

I can only assume that this is the new "windows 8" nonsense which I'm just not interested in.

Gah. Flickr! Flickr was my favorite thing, and now it is broken and useless and driving people away in droves.

So yes. I'm officially in my electronic rocking chair on my electronic front porch, waving my keyboard at the world and snarling, "Ye Dang Kids! That's not internet, that's just noise!"
Feel free to join me.
