Both Richard and Om Malik bemoan the site’s “consumerism” because it doesn’t have the sober tech-as-religion feel of CNET.
How about that? My points of contention for Yahoo Tech. (I am going to list them, for the sake of simplicity.)
1. It resembles one big advertorial.
2. The result might be appealing for the mass market users looking for basic content
3. It does lack the depth of C/Net content.
Conclusion: The end-users might be quite different for the two sites.
