Anyone else feel like this is the future of news?

When I view the Verge, I can't help but think that I am reading a newspaper.  It is in a layout that to me, revolutionizes the digital news, yet brings printed news to the web.  It takes the style of a newspaper and finds a way to bring that form factor to the web. The whole feel of The Verge is that of what I imagine what will replace printed news eventually, and I can't say that I'm disappointed.  Any other thoughts?
