AOL Repackages Personal Finance Content, Names It WalletPop

AOL just launched a personal finance website called WalletPop. It’s a combination of news feeds, blog entries, and a ton of calculators (which I just bookmarked in my “tools” folder). Mashable seems to like it—they write that digging through the content can be confusing, but there are some “nifty services such as deal finders and tax forms.” ArsTechnica is underwhelmed:

Apart from the quite adequate assortment of calculators, it’s all a big heap of plain-Jane articles slotted into categories by simple tags.

…maybe you’re better off thinking of it as a fat news feed, packed with ads and a layout that can get tiresome for long articles.
