I have written before about Finger Arts and their Hangman RSS app. It's a great app because not only does it keep you entertained, but it's informative. News feeds are used for the hangman words. Well, Finger Arts had another cool app before Hangman RSS and it's called Guess the News. And while they have a Lite version for free, the pro version is free TODAY ONLY in partnership with OpenFeint.
If you like news, wheel of fortune, hangman, crosswords, or just well polished apps, and you like FREE, you will like Guess the News!
I expect innovation, not regurgitation from Google. While enthusiastic about Google's deal with AdMob finally going through, I'm less than impressed with their new proclamation of partnering with Sony for a Google web TV.

Why am I annoyed? Aside from Google wanting to do things other than what they're really, really good at?
Liberté, Égalité, Fraternité are not the only things I love about France, though I deeply connect to these concepts. I remember my time in Paris some years back very fondly, the amazing culture, food & wine and a people who in general seem far more interested and understanding of what is happening in the world than my friends here.
I was really looking forward to downloading the iPad versions of my favorite news apps — AP News and the New York Times. But now, having used them, I've decided I prefer using the iPhone versions on my iPad. Take AP News. The home page has a lot of eye candy, but I don't see what it adds.

Digg is probably the most popular social media site — certainly my favorite.
One of the main things I use my iPhone for is to access the news. I'm addicted to keeping up with the latest news in the same way I'm addicted to e-mail.
