SOME FOR THE NEWS BUFFS
There’s always BBC (replete with a live radio feed), CNN and New York Times along with a surfeit of individual news sources available on tablets. Yet, news aggregators like Pulse News and News360 can pull in news stories— topics-wise—from multiple news sources across the Internet even as they are posted. Both free apps are available on Android tablets as well as the Playbook and theipad.
For those who want to watch TV on the ipad, there are NDTV (with live streaming) and CNBC. The Mundutv app fetches you live broadcasting from Aaj Tak, Headlines Today, and the entire NDTV channel bouquet. While all tablets have apps for videocasts and podcasts of events like the enthralling TED Talks, enchanting Discovery Channel videos, or entertaining Dilbert animated toons, etc, the Playbook has an inherent advantage: it downloads and stores these directly on the device.
