SOME FOR THE NEWS BUFFS

Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - COVER STORY -

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.
