News the new way

I got given an iPad for my birthday and it is every bit as wonderful as I thought it would be. I use it in ways I never expected – it is fabulous for recipes, which I would never have thought of:  you can prop it up like a cookbook. One of my favourite apps is Flipbook, which puts your Twitter or Facebook feed as a magazine. Very stylish. The idea seems to be catching on, as I just set up a paper.li account and have a “newspaper” of my eurostuff feed which you can read here. I remember early on in my Twitter incarnation someone defending it as “a newspaper written by people whose opinion I value”. So I guess actually MAKING it into a newspaper was just the next logical step…

Thanks to Jimmy Leach at the FCO for showing me this. You can see theirs here.
