Beta feedback

Thanks for trying out the Beta version of the new IEEE Spectrum website. Let us know what you like and dislike, what works for you and what doesn’t.

I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

          Well, I may have a problem with my browser, but I see the title "Comments" and nothing underneath...ever, on any article. Where are you hiding comments? I can't sign in to any social media at work as its barred.

            • A shortage of IT jobs?

              The only shortage is that they are outsourced. There are thousands of workers who would love the chance, but it's cheaper for their employers to send the work to India, Mexico and other third world countries. Why doesn't the government put a halt to that and concentrate on its own? Perhaps it will pay off the deficit earlier.

              • Mechanism of renewal of energy

                Thursday, September 05, 2013,

                Dear Sirs,

                I propose the scheme “Anatolii Aleksienko’s Mechanism of renewal of energy” the AUTONOMOUS engine of the FUTURE which is able to create the efficiency of more than 1(ONE) and to have almost perpetual motor life.
                It doesn’t need COOLING SYSTEM, it doesn’t use the FUEL but some lubricant, it doesn’t need any FILTERS and it is able to work “openly” underground, underwater, in GASEOUS ATMOSPHERE and in the OPEN SPACE. It is reversible, can work without transmission.
                It’s a COLD MECHANISM which doesn’t need heating and then COOLING. Neither heat of deserts nor the…

                • explain this to me, please.

                  I'm supposed to sign in to vote an article reply comment down. I've just come from the ieee.org webpage where I was signed in. I don't see anyplace *obvious* on the Spectrum article page that allows me to log in and the little pop-up admonishing me to logi-n in doesn't have an active link. Where do I sign in?

                  • STEM unionization

                    Although I've long had ambivalence regarding the value of unions, I believe that the time has come for the so-called "professionals" in STEM to consider something akin to unionization. Corporate practices over the past 30 years have driven even STEM professionals out of work or into very poorly paying jobs. I don't want a bunch of engineers standing around watching one person work, but I do want to see them treated fairly again.

                      • make the hyperlink color different or changeable

                        The new layout has good readability but having the hyperlinks in the same font color than the normal text makes you miss a lot of further reading. How about changing that color or make it changeable by the user? Or, use footnote markings like wikipedia does.

                          • Problem fix

                            I use the safari browser on my iPad 1 to read articles from links in your Video Friday email. When I tap on a link in the email, Safari opens with the link and proceeds to open the page. Before the page has fully loaded, Safari exits back to my home screen. I have been to the Aplle store twice now to see if their genius help could fix the problem. There has been no fix. I try the link using another browser, ghostery, with the same result. Could there be something in the page that is causing this behavior?

                                        We’ll probably remove the tab soon, now that most users are used to the new site. (But without the tab, how would you have told us what elements of the site are annoying? :)

                                          It was clever making the sidebar look washed out, but it still disctracts readers. Our brain can disregard one section more effectively while reading another if they have different background colors.
