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 ???

i am extremely upset by at&t just up & removing my personalized page & replacing it with what they want me to see - with absolutely no notification - i want my personal page back! - i feel like big brother has just taken over my internet home page & i don't like it - i have spent time choosing just what i want on my personal page & now it's all gone - my page is certainly not my page anymore - what can be done to return to what at&t previously offered?

I have no intention of allowing AT&T to censor the information I receive and then spoon feed me the information on their agenda. It is unconscionableI that they would make such a change without advising their users they would be losing their customized content. I will take my business elsewhere.

Many, many thanks to Art333 for posting the link to the old home page. It works, at leasy for now. Maybe even the pointy-haired boss who thought the change would be a good idea and approved it will get the idea, when the hits to the new page go down by 90%.

I really, really, really dislike the new web home page. It makes me dizzy. Whoever came up with this must have a very short attention span, who can't look at anything for more than a second. I can't get past the initial block of pictures due to its distraction.

You should have saved the money and lowered our rates instead of wasting it (our money) developing this awful mess. The design and development teams get a F- for this one.

Yes I noticed all of this as well. Also, my weather defaults to Richardson, Texas and I have to arrow to get to my city, even tho it is set as default. I noticed the weather thing is not ATT, but Yahoo. I found the my.yahoo.com still works for now, but is still branded with the ATT logo if I log in. The weather on My Yahoo also shows Richardson, Texas. What in the world is in Richardson, Texas? Yahoo or ATT doesn"t even have any offices even near there.
The customization, etc. is gone...that is ATT. The weather defaulting to the wrong location I believe is Yahoo.
I agree if ATT doesn't rethink this homepage design people will find other "homepages" and there are plenty of them out there. Just because we use ATT internet service does not mean we must use their homepage...or even their email for that manner.
C'mon ATT....make your customers satisfied.

I just noticed that on the "new" ATT.net homepage, near the top wear it says "MORE" ther is a link to My Yahoo on there. Wow! Was that always there or did they just add that because of all the complaints? It's there, tho!! Check it out. It is still customizable...for now.

The constant changing of the information on the new home page is distracting. I really prefer the old "myyahoo" page, which I understand will be discontinued.

This is new to me as well but we are totally honked about the new format. I've looked at the links and it DOES appear -- for now -- we can go back to the old format. Is it me or is AT&T dumbing down their home pages: fewer and fewer words and more pictures?? This is awful, makes it difficult to figure out what the "story" is, and slows everything down. What a joke! I think their focus group for developing this must have been elementary and middle schoolers! Sorry kids, I honestly don't wish to offend you!
I just hope someone -- anyone -- from AT&T is monitoring this site so they can see what a cobble job they have made of this. And it just makes me sick the money I have paid them in my bills is going to stuff like this!
Has anyone at AT&T tried the "new Coke" yet? Has anyone at AT&T heard the "new Coke" story??
I'm looking for a new home page.....

I don't know about you but this new home page sucks, I was so happy with my old page. I could find everything on my home page. This new home page only has what they want.

I totally agree! It seems that once again commercial interests take preference over individuals'. With the old one, I could see many things at first glance; now, there is one big picture from the news that I'm not likely to want to see. To get down to the band of news stories, I have to scroll down. Then, when I want to search or go to a particular website, I have to scroll up.
Please, please, please! let us opt to keep the previous format!
