Could we please get rid of these silly tiles and move back to some reasonable indented textual format...so that you can at least find something on the web pages?

Won't even load without javascript enabled.

// it's not even a good tiled interface.

You want a good tiled interface, look at feedly or pinterest.

I'm on a 24" monitor because I want to see lots of content ... how about we drop the size of these tiles.

I also assumed someone had hacked it this morning.  Count me among those removing it from their news bookmarks and looking elsewhere.

And I took the time to send them a feedback letter stating this.

Subject:  Feedback - NBCNews home page redesign

Do Not Want.
 
I am not impressed with this panel-based presentation; more space for less content.  While this may be appropriate for mobile phones and other touch screen devices, it's cumbersome for the desktop user.  Desktop users prefer text or icons, panels are a poor use of space and are harsh on the eyes (at least in my case).  By the way, the panel presentation is one of the bigger gripes people have with Windows 8.
 
I am likely change the home page in my browsers to that of a news organization with a more traditional front page.
 
Demographics (for your research purposes)
male
age 40-50
location - Georgia, United States
occupation - information technology
usage - 5 or more times/day.
 
 Sincerely,
some farker <- not how I signed the letter
 
PS - I just looked at a few news sites:
Yahoo - not much better but they do have a category selection menu on the left side.
BBC - messy
ABC News - not impressive
CNN - much better
Google News - much better
Fox News - the presentation is much better than NBC but it's still Fox News (no thanks)

Hobodeluxe: they should give you the option to turn off the tablet version


Just download and install classic NBC news shell, and it will work just fine.

Wellon Dowd: Great! Another UI that assume I can't read. I'm looking at you, Netflix.

This might be the final straw that keeps me from going to them for news. Any suggestions for a news site that treats me like an adult?



I NEVER thought I would say this, but try this one:

Perhaps you should look into a site or service that aggregates the stories the for you.

How about Google News?

it behaves very strangely in chrome when scrolling, not so bad in IE, and it gets even uglier when using anything but 100% zoom.
