I took a stab at fixing the visual problems I found with Yahoo!'s recent redesign.

I liked the blog post and analysis - it'd be cool to have a side-by-side for easier comparison, but it's clear that your reconstruction pays attention to what's important: typography
wow. a lot of subtle tweaks, but a HUGE improvement.
The spacing in the left-hand-side menu is a lot nicer. I'm guessing they squeezed it to fit that little advertising tile "above the fold".
Your carousel is a bajillion times better. For me the current Yahoo one feels like the worst part of the page. But I'd love to see any analytics they had guiding that choice.
The sprint ad looks better in this aspect ratio, but to be fair you probably should have tried to keep to the IAB 300x250 size.
Thanks for the love. I address some concerns, including the ad width, in this post: http://www.freshtilledsoil.com/for-a-few-yahoos-more-the-yahoo-redesign-reconstructed/
