CES 2014: Yahoo looks to simplify news with Yahoo News Digest app

Yahoo has announced a few digital properties at CES 2014, ones aimed to simplify and beautify news consumption.

The first announcement was called Yahoo News Digest, an app that curates news from various sources and sends them to users in twice-daily rounds updates, or "digests."

The idea, CEO Marissa Mayer said, is to eliminate "tl:dr," or "too long; don't read."

With News Digest, users get a splashy picture followed by summaries of stories culled from around the web. Click on a story, and users see a brief summary, followed by a unique set of "atoms" pertinent to the content. A story about conflict in the Middle East may include a map of where the event took place, for example.
