Google Fast Flip: New Interface is Bad News by PC World: Yahoo! Tech

David Coursey is not a Fast Flip fan…

Google's experimental Fast Flip is a new way to consume online news, but not a better one. It falls into the trap of trying to make a computer imitate real-life. Rarely does this have a happy ending.

Fast Flip tries to make online news more like reading a newspaper or magazine, giving users pages to flip or slide through. (See it here).

There are short or truncated headlines and lots of terribly rendered pages in Fast Flip. The user interface is a mess and I found it took longer to access news in Fast Flip than on the regular Google News page.
