Note to our readers
January 23, 2001

For an online news organization covering the high-tech industry, the only constant is change.

As CNET News.com's readership has grown exponentially, we have been reminded time and again that delivering the news first is what matters most. In the digital realm, this entails not only accurate and fair reporting, but also fast-loading, easily navigable service.

Today we launch a redesign with these principles in mind.

The new front page includes fewer graphics and more of the latest and most important headlines. The goal is better access to the 50 to 60 stories News.com publishes each workday.

Listed at the top are News.com's six departments, followed by a collection of popular issues in the upper right-hand corner called Today's Hot Topics. Just below, in News.com On Air, is a compendium of exclusive multimedia interviews with leading high-tech figures.

Also on the front page, we've created a new section for our award-winning Special Reports; in-depth Newsmaker interviews; feature articles on high-tech industry management from the University of Pennsylvania's Knowledge@Wharton; and columns written by regular contributors as well as News.com editors.

Adhering to the original goals of our launch in September 1996, we have reported the news with the immediacy of broadcasting and the depth of print media. We have won many awards and established important partnerships with major news organizations, including The New York Times, The Associated Press and ABC News.

Most gratifying, however, has been the continued support we have received from you, our readers. We believe our growth means that you have come to trust and rely on CNET News.com to provide credible, in-depth and timely coverage of the converging worlds of computing, electronics, media and telecommunications.

I am eager to hear your thoughts. Please write with suggestions on improving our service.

Jai Singh,
Editor in chief, CNET News.com
