Hello My Yahoo’s,
I’ve been skiing and snowboarding my whole life, and the biggest bummer was getting to the mountain and finding trails not fully covered by snow or lift lines closed because of weather conditions.
Well, for those of you who brave the winter weather to conquer the mountain, life just got a little easier. With the new Ski and Snow Report module from My Yahoo!, you get everything you need to know to prepare for the trip…don’t forget the long-johns!
As you can see from my module, living in California has given me a buffet of big mountains to choose from…but I always like keeping up on the mountains back home on the East coast. The beauty of this module is that you can track reports for mountains around the world!
Enjoy the Ski and Snow Report …but most of all enjoy the skiing, boarding, snow-shoeing, x-country, whatever suits your fancy this winter season!
My Yahoo! Marketing
I have been an active My Yahoo! user since its launch. The Stock Portfolios module was the first tool I used to track stocks. At that time the only investment I made was with my employee stock plans, so I used the module mainly to monitor how other companies in my industry were doing. A bubble and thousands of trades later, I am now actively managing a portfolio of a dozen securities and closely researching more than 100 others. I still find the Stock Portfolios module my best companion when I enjoy the roller-coaster ride of the capital markets.
As an active investor, I use a suite of My Yahoo! modules to track my portfolio performance, monitor foreign currencies, and make informed financial decisions. Specifically, I’ve found it handy to set up my page like a financial dashboard, with Marketing Summary , Company News and Stock Portfolios grouped next to each other.
When the markets are in session, I periodically scan the dashboard from left to right, starting at the NASDAQ intraday chart and other key indices, followed by latest news about the stocks I hold. I end at my portfolios, looking for any significant price movements that may require my immediate attention. This often triggers me to look for related news, so I point my mouse over the news icon next to the stock symbol for more info. In addition, the Stock Portfolios module also allows me to track cash balances, money market funds, mutual funds, ETFs, currencies, options and futures, in all major exchanges worldwide.
For the international investors, merchants and travelers among us, the Currency Converter provides a quick and easy way to manage forex transactions. Tip: you can track the exchange rate to as many as 6 foreign currencies at the same time by putting the currency (e.g. USD) in both the top row and the leftmost column of the currency table. This is just one of the many ways to use this compact but powerful module.
My Yahoo! Product Manager
I admit it. One of the reasons I use my My Yahoo! page so much is because it helps me save time and stay organized. I love making lists, but crossing off my to dos is even better! So I thought I’d pass along a few ways I use my page.
This handy module helps me track tasks. I love the ability to assign a priority to them, so I can see at-a-glance what I should work on when I have a few spare minutes.
This keeps me updated and I can quickly see what’s happening today and tomorrow.
I have a work page and a personal page (with a To Do module on each, of course!).
And there are a few feeds I can’t live without. Top Picks is a handy module when I only have a few minutes to check my page. It brings together all the stories from across my page that I’m most likely to be most interested in. I also love the Unclutterer blog, because I aspire to have a more efficient and sparse living space.
Hope you enjoy these features as much as I do!
Have fun decorating your pages!
