I have a few suggestions concerning the opinion column.
Click ALL OPINION and a list comes up. Each entry has the date and the title listed, but not the author. The author is very important for an opinion artlcle. The author should be listed.
Also, you only provide 2 sorting options, recent or most commented. A qualifier option would be appreciated, that is sort by author. With sort by author deslected, it would operate the same as now. Select sort by author and the sort switches to a 2-level sort, sorted first by author, and then within the section for each author by recent or most commented, as selected. This would make it easy to check up on posts by a favorite author.
Hey phononscattering, we've circled back and fixed the homepage such that the header is smaller and you can get to see more of the content on initial page load - regardless of the screen size, but especially in the case of laptops/tablets. Many thanks for the feedback and hope the mod helps. We're definitely happy to have it implemented. Best for now,
I'm a EETimes reader for 6 years now. Did not really like the previous version of the site. As for the new layout I'm not totally happy as it seems like there's no way of looking and searching of the old articles / posts (or at least it is done in some cryptic way). I was wondering if you could have all the history shown with dates of original post / articles and sort it the way you want (tables with search options were invented for this). I also find it really hard to come back to the article I was reading say a day before - if it does not appear on the quick tabs it looks like its almost gone (this article was on the tabs fortunately). The whole appearance of the site looks like some version on Amazon (total clutter) - I would much prefer if you guys could have more Google like approach (maybe have a button to switch if somebody likes this cluttered version). I'd love to see a professional forum that you can easily navigate where all the info would be in one table (so you could search by say: date of original post, date of last comment, title, author, design category) with no flying tabs, buttons, sections, thumbnails...
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
