Online The Week seems to be a collecting compendium news site sort of like an RSS reader, or should I say it, like the The Drudge Report. The few articles I checked referred to another web site to read the whole article as originally published. Since it is a compendium I would guess editorially it would be what it selects to feature. I couldn’t determine that in a quick glance over.
I’m starting to collect my news on an iPad using RSS readers and selecting the sources I want to follow. The RSS readers present the articles in a headline fashion, synopsis and then link to the originating article so you can sort through fast. They also format more like a magazine in view instead of a typical web news page. In addition I read some of the other packaged apps like the NY Times, BBC and USA Today. The apps are easier to read and better formatted than their web sites. You can also quickly download and update the news apps with a wifi connection and then read it offline. I would think commuters would find that worth while.
I hope I can be anonymous in doing that with RSS readers. One thing I learned is there are some web sites that will glom onto you and follow you everywhere. If you want to see, just research a product on NexTag.com. Everywhere you go afterwards the products you searched will pop up in ads. Amazon.com does a pretty good job chasing after you too if you buy anything from them.
