Yahoo has unveiled two new sites Yahoo Food and Yahoo Tech. The sites are designed with phones and tablets in mind says Yahoo, but its photographic tile layout with bite-sized stories offers a fresh design for traditional desktop browsing as well.
Yahoo Food carries photos, recipes, stories on food trends, and cooking tools and techniques. The editorial team includes managing editor Sarah McColl; former Bon Appetit senior web editor, Julia Bainbridge; Rachel Tepper who joined from Huffington Post Food; and Alex Van Buren, who has written for Bon Appetit, Gourmet, and Martha Stewart Living. Yahoo is also partnering with publishers like Bon Appetit, Epicurious, Food52, and Martha Stewart for content.
Led by former New York Times tech scribe David Pogue, Yahoo Tech is for people who use technology in their everyday lives. The editorial team includes Rob Pegoraro (USA Today, Washington Post), Dan Tynan (Newsweek, Popular Science, Family Circle), Rob Walker (New York Times, Slate), and Deb Amlen (New York Times, others); editor Jason Gilbert (New York Times, Huffington Post), editorial director Rafe Needleman (CNET, others), and Daniel Bean (ABC News, CBS); Alyssa Bereznak (Vanity Fair, Gizmodo), and Brian Heater (Engadget, PC Magazine) and Ben Silverman (Yahoo Games, others).
