Yahoo's homepage has gotten a makeover. Why? The website wants to be a place that people visit -- and stay on. And we were all just starting to get used to the idea of 3D printing, and now here comes the 3Doodler -- a pen that lets you draw with plastic.

Maybe that's because the price is right: $75.
