How do I put the CNET and PCWorld News Stories Content back on this New ATT Home ???
.... This customized News Stories Content is the Most Important Feature of using the ATT Home Page for me, but now its gone and that was the main reason why I used ATT for My Home Page. ... Very Frustrated with this customized news content removal.
... So, what Home Page can I use now to have Customized News Content ??? --- Any one have a Suggestion ???

There IS an option (although it may be very temporary.)
I found that by going to Yahoo.com (while logged in), I had the option of going to "My Yahoo" (http://my.yahoo.com/?fr=whatever). This is the old homepage, with all customization options available.
I'm not sure that this will be maintained, but for the short-term it IS a solution.
Maybe the massive complaints will convince AT&T to re-think their decision....
We can only hope.....

I do not like the new Home page period. I liked it the way i had it customized. Im not a big fan of Yahoo either. Now with the new AT&T / Yahoo / Home page , I have to sign in every time , and yes I click the keep me signed in for 2 weeks crap , but I still have to sign in every time . They need to eliminate the auto sign out every 2 weeks and allow people to stay permanently signed in if they do choose so.
They also should give the option of keeping your personalized Home page no matter how many different home pages they come up with.
One could say this is a derivative of some form of communistic thought of " We know whats best for You " . But thank God we still have choice in this Country . I just changed my Home page to " Google " home page and will continue to use it until AT&T/ Yahoo allows me to have my old Home page back as a choice. Whats really frustrating is , I have to access ny Bellsouth e-mail through them .
More choice is always better than one choice.

Watch out for Google too! I switched to Bing for a true and more realistic search not just what Google wanted me to know.

I hate att. they cahnge this all the time and we lose everything we actually needed and all the work we did making our page usable. I HATE THEM and good luck trying to call them because they are a total sham!!!!!!!!!! You cannot even get to the place you need.

I hate ATT. How do we get ahold of them and tell them how much we hate this? Good luck trying to get through to anyone on their crappy phone system.

yes, AT&T has really screwed up this time. neither my husband nor I want this generic page they set up for us. Thank god the my.yahoo.com link works so far, but AT&T is going to lose us as customers if they don't go back. That means we drop Uverse, cell phone, internet. Comcast would love to have our business!
So....AT&T: PUT IT BACK!!!!!

I agree!!! I don't like the look of the page and I kept ATT for my home page mainly because we could choose colors, sports teams, entertainment. BRING BACK the old page, please!!!!

The new Home Page arrangement is a travesty! Give us back our old format--there was NOTHING wrong with it. You don't fix it if it isn't BROKEN! Nobody gives a hoot about what a celebrity is having for dinner or who is baring their breasts in publc! GET REAL! The headlines banner is inconvenient and you have to scroll all the way to the bottom fo the page to see the news.

Is anyone else as dissapointed as I am in the new ATT home page?
Here are my reasons:
1. I wasn't asked
2. I've lost my weather info on selected cities
3. Everything seems to take longer
4. I hate HATE having images of murderers, pink slime, violence etc. hitting me in the face everytime I
go to the homepage to check my e-mail
5. And I REALLY hate all the ads.
I've tried to reset to an earlier time to get back to my old home page but of course that no longer is an option.
Anyone else having issues with this? Am I just dumb (I'm not the most PC savvy person)?

Why fix something that wasn't broken, Can't personalize, has so much repetitive content, most of which I don;t want in the first place let alone on several different sections of the page. And unable to customize. Please for Gods sake, change it back!!!!!!
Also, how in the he## do you stop the freaking pop up asking to take a tour????

Yesterday when I typed in my.yahoo.com it just kept bumping me to the new page with the new uncustomizable format and the FAQ I read said RSS feeds were being discontinued from here on out. Today when I typed in my.yahoo.com, I had my old page back. And can't find the same FAQ I read last night. So what gives? Have they decided we can have our RSS feeds after all?
On second thought, I've already spent hours and hours making a new RSS page at netvibes.com. Think I'm going to stick with that. You have lost my eyeballs for good, yahoo.

Very disgusted with the new format myself. I may switch to another homepage option because of this. Someone really was not on the ball. In fact, they slipped off the ball and got ran over by it. I had previously uploaded my art to be the border on my homepage and miss the butterflies and clovers and creativity that came with the previous homepage format.

The new home page is terrible. Why fix something that isn't broke? I don't have local news or other links I had a quick connection to and I can't customize it how I like. The old Home Page was MY Home Page. The new home page is a generic garbage page. Bring back the old Home Page or at least something comparable.
