Google Fast Flip

| tech | software |

Google has come out with yet another ingenious device that will help make our lives a little bit easier. It is called Google Fast Flip and as the name suggest it allows you to digest news much quicker and more efficiently then before.

I do not know how many people truly read the news anymore, but I find myself spending countless hours of my day attached to news.google.com trying to get the latest tid bits of information about all sorts of different topics.

I like the layout for Google Fast Flip. If you use an apple computer and have Entourage then you will be familiar with the layout. It has a bunch of different newspapers in mini format and when you click on one it zooms in and allows you to view the whole article. It even takes it a step further and allows you to filter between topics, newspapers, sections of the paper etc. The topics is kind of like twitter for news. It shows you all the trending topics and what the different newspapers have to say about them.

The only issue I have is that as of right now there are under 40 sources from which the fast flip gets the stories from. I am looking forward to more newspapers, magazines, and websites participating in this to broaden the scope. Also it would be interesting to have a blog version of fast flip.

Thanks google for another great product! Check it out.

UPDATE: Sorry forgot to mention. This is a google Labs product. Meaning it is experimental and may not be ready for final release. Just thought I would throw that in there!

Thank you for reading! Share your thoughts with me on mastodon or via email.

Community is one of the main topics I touch on here. My community, my social media is an email and iMessage, but I thought I could do more. I did such an experiment last year and I quit soon after. I don't think I was ready for it. Today I still don&#…

Weekly Update 409

It feels weird to be writing anything right now that isn't somehow related to Friday's CrowdStrike incident, but given I recorded this video just a few hours before all hell broke loose, it'll have to wait until next week. This week, the issue…
