Yahoo Plans Gadget Website

Posted on June 20, 2005

The Media Post reports that Yahoo is planning to launch a gadget and tech website. The Media Post found a blog entry on Jeff Boulter's blog,the engineering manager for Yahoo! News, that discussed a Yahoo job listing for a new Yahoo technology website. The job listing says, "You'll be part of a team dedicated to building an innovate new site for millions of users to discover, find and use consumer technology such as digital cameras, MP3 players and computers."

This new site probably means a big new competitor for tech companies like CNET and popular gadget blogs. However, Yahoo might also be building an aggregator type of site that pulls from various blogs and news feeds. If this is the case then the new Yahoo site might boost traffic to some of the gadget and tech blogs.
