Yahoo hired Patrick Houston, 51 years old, away from Cnet Networks Inc., where he was editor-in-chief of Cnet.com, a site that publishes reviews of computers, cellphones and videogames.

Mr. Houston will lead Yahoo’s initiative to expand its technology content as part of a newly created position, said a spokesman for the Sunnyvale, Calif.-based company. The expansion could include introducing original Yahoo content on the technology site, he said. Yahoo’s tech site currently aggregates news and product reviews from other sources.
