Tools: Fast Flipping Out
Cool new tool from Google Labs: Fast Flip. It's kind of a redesigned iGoogle with visuals of the hard-copy laid-out pages of your favourite news and information sources. You can customize it according to the publications of your choice or various subject headings ("politics," "business," "sports") and flip through pages as you would in a magazine. A little gimmicky, but still somewhat potentially useful for the busy info hound. But also, read this take from the Online Journalism Blog on what Fast Flip could mean for the troubled news industry.
