We noticed that Google has announced it's "Fast Flip" website news service, which is a new way of presenting a comprehensive pictorial-like overview of what is going on with just about everything. Here is a link to their new gig, enjoy... In retrospect, we should point out that what you see when you first land there is not the way it has to be, and that the format is quite flexible. Note that there are four main categories that cross the page horizontally, which can be moved left or right using the arrows at the left or right. Or, there are minimize buttons at the left of each of the four horizontal categories, and if you minimize all main categories and then click on a subcategory, that more of the articles for that subcategory will fill the page (note that if you do this, you have to use the browser's back button to return to the main page). And so on, play around with it and you will see that it is fairly flexible in what you can do with it. Some like it, some don't. For alternatives, see the subject "The best way to get news that you want only when you want it" under the Technical category on the Wisbits site (the second topic from the top).
