WNBC-TV 4 New York's tech reporter Sree Sreenivasan did a piece called "Web Sites Help You Find Food You Crave". In it he featured ZAGAT.com and ZAGAT TO GO (pictured in retail form at left) as well as Chowhound and Eater. Click the image to see the video on WNBC's website.
Today Verizon Wireless launched a slightly redesigned version of its Mobile Web 2.0 portal (aka WAP deck). Unfortunately I can't take a screenshot of it (old version pictured at left) but here are a summary of the changes:
Top navigation of Home, Search and Favorites replaced with a banner ad. I imagine this is primarily to create more banner inventory to sell to advertisers. Currently they're using to promote VZW downloadable apps and services.
Top Headlines graphic with image map links turned into a Top Headlines pull-down with context relevant headlines in each section of the portal. This saves a little space and makes the images cleaner as they no longer have text on top of them.
Grid navigation increased from 2x4 to 2x5. Now all number keys can be used for shortcuts and on the homepage this is where Search and Favorites were moved to on the homepage.
Overall these are subtle changes but create an aesthetic improvement and from a business perspective increases the ad inventory that they can monetize.
