How is the NY Times on your iPad?

I live somewhere without delivery of decent newspapers e.g. nytimes. How good are the iPad versions of various newspapers: are they delivered electronically on time, do they have all/most of the content of the paper (i.e. color photos) edition, etc.? Bonus: do the major newspapers have decent Android versions?

How do I make an RSS feed for Bloomberg News?

I'd like to have an RSS feed for Bloomberg News, specifically for their environment reporting, that I can put into Google Reader. The problem is, Bloomberg News discontinued RSS feeds in 2006. None of the workarounds I've found are satisfactory: This one, for example, tries to use Google News, but it wouldn't really work for my purposes. (Using "environment" site:bloomberg.com as my search string wouldn't necessarily return all news items related to the environment -- a story just about renewable energy, for example, not its environmental benefits, wouldn't show up at all.) There's also Feedity, but they want you to pay to have feeds with any sort of functionality, which I'd rather not do if I don't have to. Page2RSS is closer to the mark, but the output is messy (multiple stories in the same feed item). Businessweek.com, which is owned by Bloomberg News, offers RSS feeds with Bloomberg News, but they don't allow for narrowing down on just the environment reporting. Is there a solution out there that's better? [more inside]

What will be in the news next year?

Certain news stories are predictable in advance-- because they cover stories that happen every year (like the Oscars or the Super Bowl); or because they cover events you can see coming a long time away (like the 500th birthday of some historical personage.) Is there any comprehensive list of Things That Will Probably Be In The News Next Year? I'm looking for something like this weekly preview from CNN, but over a longer timescale.

Aggregated local news without Football and syndicated content

I'd like some way to find aggregated local news rather than having to go to each local newspaper site individually. I am generally pretty happy with Google news at the big story level but it fails at the Birmingham, UK level where pretty much the only news it ever picks up is the national paper's coverage of the football teams.

Attention Fox News: don't fuck with Canada

I'm having trouble tracking down Troy Hurtubise's "Don't fuck with Canada" YouTube response to Fox News host Greg Gutfeld's inflammatory commentary about the Canadian military on Red Eye. I'm sure the numerous violent threats that pepper the video might have something to do with why I can't find it anywhere, but I've never had this much trouble tracking down something that got a fair bit of press when it first aired... Can you help me out, hivemind?

Trying to remember a daily curated news aggregator site

I am trying to remember the address of a website I used to use daily. It's a one-page site, updated early each morning with a selection of links to Australian and international news stories. It's not just an aggregator; the links are carefully chosen by a woman who I believe used to be a newspaper reporter. It's called something like 'morning news' or 'breakfast brief'. Maddeningly, it seems to be un-Googlable. Any ideas? Or, failing that, any suggestions for similar sites?
