If you have an iPad you owe it to yourself to give Zite a spin.  It’s a magazine app similar to Flipboard, but much better in my opinion.  It’s become one of my few “everyday” launches.

UPDATE: Flipboard now features ads, and…

In addition to Flipboard, there is a Vancouver-based startup called Zite — which drew the ire of the traditional industry by “scraping” content from RSS feeds while removing advertising, and was hit with a cease-and-desist order from a number of media players — as well as News.me, which was created by programmers at the New York Times and is now part of the Betaworks incubator, and others such as News360.

I haven’t launched Flipboard since they switched on the ads, but it will be interesting to see how this plays out on these news aggregating apps.  Aside from the occasional unrelated article (my Final Cut Pro page in Zite offers up a review of “Blade Runner: The Final Cut”) it’s an interesting and refreshing way to catch up on topics of your choosing.
