I posted earlier about creating a personalized version of the news giving readers the ability to be their own editor. Amazon has debuted a larger format Kindle that brings us one step closer to personalized news delivered direct to your Kindle. It's rumored that NY Times will announce it is reducing the price of it's electronic subscription in conjunction with this new release.
I also found Newsmap (image at left), via John Winsor. This is exactly what I'm thinking could be the format for personalized news. Imagine having a Kindle-like piece of hardware that receives your news in a format similar to this below every morning. Including professional news, blogs, and other daily refreshed information (stocks, weather, bank account?, etc).
