MobileViews 5-cent review #2: NBCNews.com site redesigned by Pinterest?

nbcnews_pinterestdesign_20140205

Site: NBCNews.com website
Price: Free
What I say:
– NBC decided to launch its redesigned NBC News site a day before the first 2014 Winter Olympics competition starts
– It was, apparently, redesigned by Pinterest
– It now takes much longer to scroll through just a few news articles
– Unless you have a large display (large > 21″), you will probably have to expand your web browser to fill the screen to read this redesigned website
– Rating? 1 cent on a 5 cent scale
