@ryschill I left there in April 2009.
It’s another news aggregator site, like we need another, but this one has some nifty new twists. You can dictate the news you want by category or keywords easily enough, but the twist comes in the reading. The site paid for the rights to run the full stories from the major news sources, so no snippet and then click to go to the full story at another site, it’s all there for you.
You can either just read the stories on the site or you can set your selected stories to be delivered to your email. In what is probably the oddest twist, set it to print out from your printer at scheduled times each day. While I can understand wanting to read a hard-copy of a story so you can take it anywhere want, I just think that could get horribly expensive in a hurry.
It’s a private beta (ugh) right now, but it’s expected to go public in the next few weeks. Oh, and yes, it’s free to use.
