A few hours ago I noticed that my Yahoo Mail home page (the page visible after logging-in) now contains a "module" labeled "In the News." It offers headlines and direct links to five news stories. A pull down allows the user to see headlines for six news categories. I wouldn't be surprised to see other new "modules" (RSS feeds? Stock Prices? Local Weather?) in the near future. Here's a screen cap of what I'm seeing.
Yahoo made a similar "tweak" at the beginning of 2005 for My Yahoo users who utilize Yahoo's clutter-free and customizable search.yahoo.com homepage. The changes (still available) allow a My Yahoo user to see current news headlines, view the number of unread mail messages in their Yahoo Mail inbox, and review the current Dow Jones market average. All of these "modules" can be made visible/invisible with a quick click.
