Google Launches Service to Flip Through News Articles
Google’s (GOOG) experiments to help the publishing industry adapt the Web continue.
In April, the company introduced an interactive news timeline, newstimeline.googlelabs.com, that displays summaries of news articles chronologically and allows users to slice and dice their view by source.
Last week, it disclosed its plans to help publishers earn money, saying it was working on improving its payment service to help publishers charge for their content online.
Monday, it was “Fast Flip.” Unveiled at a conference in San Francisco, the service allows users to scroll through screenshots of news articles page by page.
