Pogue Leaving the New York Times

The NY Times reported this afternoon that David Pogue, longtime (13 years) tech columnist for the New York Times is leaving to start a new consumer-oriented tech site for Yahoo!.  I’m a fan or all three: the NY Times (great paper and good business oriented tech coverage) , Yahoo! (been a subscriber there since the week they started offering subscriptions), and Pogue as a talented tech writer.  I’ll continue to read the Times daily (yeah Bits Blog!) and use Yahoo! both as an info and services source.  I think the biggest challenge will fall to Pogue.  He’s usually a great writer and if you have seen his videos you know that he can stand in front of a camera and report on a story.  Can he carry an entire site?  I guess we will all see?
