Gotta love it...

When you go to the Yahoo NCAA tournament coverage, select a video, watch the HP ad, and THEN get a message telling you that you can't watch video on your system. Can't watch the video, but have no problem watching the ads. Hmmmm.

I'm not going to bother going to their help page to figure out why it's broken; I'll simply go elsewhere to get what I want. Yahoo blows it yet again. They eviscerated their TV listings about three months ago, turning it from a useful, convenient module on my homepage into something so totally worthless and counterintuitive that I deleted the module and bookmarked More lost revenue, as they are getting fewer pageviews from me as a consequence.

Can anyone recommend a good start page? Yahoo used to have the best portal in the business, but they seem to have a need to fix it until it's broken, and I'd like to have some options when it's no longer worth it. Google's start page is not ready for prime time, and the one that is provided by my ISP is not much better.

It's free. It loads really, really fast. And it's clutter-free.
