Google Partners with News Outlets for Fast Flip 3

Yesterday Google launched Fast Flip, a new service that allows you to read the news in more visual way then through Google News. While the site appears intriguing, it currently lacks content and personalized settings that would make it tool for everyday use (at least for right now). It also seems to take longer to browse through the article as you need to click on the images in order to make them a size that is legible (the picture below is pretty similar to how it appears).

What’s also new about this service is that the Fast Flip only pulls content from specific news outlets that Google has partnered with (currently about 3 dozen are on board). According to Google’s blog post, “these partners will share the revenue earned from contextually relevant ads.”

For additional reading, you can check out some positive reviews (surprise) from some of Google’s partners such as the New York Times, BusinessWeek, BBC News, Salon and TechCrunch.
