This week's hot news is going to be a little different. We're inviting you to help us test out a new tool called JogTheWeb designed for wrap ups.
If you like it, we'll be using it to put together groups of articles on specific topics that you may be interested in.
Essentially, once you click on the link below, a new page will launch with a side bar. On the left side bar, you'll be presented with the list of articles that we thought were the most interesting during the week. Each list will be accompanied by a short blurb explaining what the article is about. In the main page, the actual article will load.
Simply click the left and right arrows to go back and forth between stories. Or, click on the blurb on the left themselves to launch the story. It's that easy--and most importantly, fast.
We think using this way, you'll not only be able to read the original story, but participate directly with the comments and existing user thread in that story, without having to track the original down. To exit the tool and remain in the site, simply click the red X at the top-right corner of the left side bar.
So help us test out the new tool and let us know what you think of it!
If you think of other specific topics you would like to see grouped together in this manner, let us know. For example, we could create a "Jog" of all interesting overclocking or Windows 7 stories so you don't have to scour the site.
Let us know and enjoy!
