If you are a a big fan of Flipboard on the iPad then you may want to take a look at News360 . News360 is a news aggregator created by a Russian start up company based in Moscow. At this time it collects from 500 sources, but is expected to increase to 1,000 sources soon. It uses artificial intelligence and semantic analysis to choose the sources and articles. It is beautiful and easy too use.

If you leave highlight on, it will highlight the other companies and Web sites that are listed in the article. Click on a highlighted company and you can see a summary of that company. The site does divide into various category. You can also link it to your Facebook account a it will then add articles based on what is in your Facebook account. I find News360 fun and easy to use. If you like to control everything then News360 is probably not for you, however if you just want the best articles brought to you in various categories then I would recommend News360.  It did have trouble loading once and it also froze one time, despite these few problems I do recommend News360.
