Wheaton, MD, United States, 2009/10/09 - Dr. Steve Baba has developed a new minimalist news portal, Shrewd.com - a list of the 30 best news websites - to allow news readers to fast click through to all the major news websites.
“Fast access to diverse news sources from the liberal New York Times to conservative Fox News helps citizens stay informed and depolarize the debate,” states Dr. Steve Baba, who developed Shrewd.com as an easy-to-use, fast, minimalist news portal.
Unlike other news portals, Shrewd.com does not show any breaking news or flashy advertisements that interrupt users every time they turn on their computers. Shrewd.com contains only fixed links to other news sites, so readers can quickly read news only when they want to.
This minimalist design was a factor in Google’s early success, since other search engines distracted people with cluttered search pages, while Google™ had only a few words on its homepage.
Like Google’s search page, but unlike Google’s cluttered news page, Shrewd.com is a very-small, fast-loading page that does not slow or distract with unwanted extras.
Shrewd.com has a very minimalist design containing only 76 words. Sometimes less is more. Visit Shrewd.com to try out the news portal for yourself and for more information.
You can also customize Shrewd.com by adding links of your own below the 30 best news sites. Common uses are adding local news websites and hobby sites for one-click access. For example, hikers can add Backpacker.com. Hawaiians could add links to their local Honolulu newspapers. Africans could add links to their local African newspapers.
Steve Baba has a Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Maryland and eBusiness experience.
