New Features

VarOOM. CMP's biweekly varBusiness updates its image with hopes of retaining those loyal readers deemed "architects of the new economy." Watch for an increased
focus on emerging technology and market research, plus in depth features laden with a richer assortment of digestible charts and graphs. The front of the book, now called "In the
Beginning," will offer a mix of analysis, research and current events with a technology twist. The tony redesign comes courtesy of Robert Priest, who also handled makeovers for
InStyle, GQ, Esquire and Newsweek. Robert DeMarzo is editorial director. (rdemarzo@cmp.com)
