My God, Stuff's new homepage looks bloody terrible. At least the old one - while not perfect - was reasonably compact. Now it feels like you have to scroll for hours to see anything as the top headlines take up almost the entire top of the page.

 

Fortunately the app hasn't changed - yet.

 

 

That's interesting, I find it much cleaner and easier. Guess no one can win!

I don't like it either. Too much white space around everything.

What do you find cleaner about it, specifically? It just seems to take up a whole lot more space to me.

This looks like a bad move for Stuff. It feels less engaging. There is less seeding of clickbait and there have been no rants in this topic by people complaining about a click article they read in detail and then did not like. I clicked on an article about Michael Jackson and his daughter and the article was not found.

Edit: mobile site in my case

Hmmm...

 

 

Trying to be funny, or "user friendly?"  Whatever.

In fact, a shrapnel bomb around by the time of arcade, which used to be situated around puke, which is where the art gallery is.

 

I have no idea what that's trying to say...

I found it cleaner the other day - when they first rolled out the change - because for one day there was no background banner ad.

 

The mobile site seems much better - ads used to cover content on articles and you couldn't get them out of the way.

 

I won't use an ad-blocker on that site.  I don't want their business to fail.

I have seen so many shocking typos, misspellings, and just sheer garble in RNZ articles lately that I have given up citing them here. Something is clearly going on at RNZ, and it isn't good.

I'm using it on desktop, just more space, fewer ads, loads faster and scrolls more easily. I haven't tried it on my phone or tablet yet. Still working from home so my laptop is getting a pounding.

I think this is an extremely poor automatic voice-to-text translation.

 

IIRC, what the Mayor said was more or less that "shrapnel bombs were around at the time of the Rutland Stockade, which used to be situated at Pukenamu, which is where the Art Gallery is"

 

 

 

The Rutland Stockade was a colonial era military fortification in Wanganui (as it was then spelled). It was named after the regiment who originally built and manned it, the 58th Rutlandshire Regiment.

 

Pukenamu or "Sandfly Hill", later "Queen's Park", is a large sandhill overlooking the Whanganui River on what was then the edge of the settlement. These days it contains the District Library, the Alexander Research Library, and the Sergeant Art Gallery, currently being expanded and earthquake strengthened. Immediately adjacent are the Whanganui Regional Museum and the Whanganui War Memorial Hall complex

 

 

 

Edit: Spelling

Huge power outage in Auckland after 'significant weather'

 

"At least 25,000 Aucklanders have lost power after wild weather in the region on Wednesday afternoon.
Transpower spokeswoman Deborah Gray said the outages had affected homes and business in Warkworth, Wellsford, Kaiwaka, Maungaturoto, Ruawai and the Mangawhai areas."

 

https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/122067318/significant-weather-for-auckland-large-power-outage-in-the-north

 

None of those places are in Auckland
25,000 customers would be about 2% of Vector's customer base, so not really that huge anyway.

I thought it was the headline reporting Trump's 2016 election win.

TV3 the AM show.

 

At 06:00:  the news

 

At ~06:10: a segment called What's New

So, the rest of the program is actually "The Olds" then?

As opposed to TV1's Breakfast, where they interview a person at 06:55, and then include clips from that exact same interview in the 07:00 News. I guess that at least it *is* new.
