River of News everywhere, now, please

AOL embraces River of News. Why doesn't everyone else just go ahead and do it too. Think about it. When you want news, you want the new stuff, you don't want to wade through sections looking for the new stuff. You want the computer to find it for you. Too many electronic news sites are patterned after newspapers, that published once a day. In the real world of today, news is published all the time. Might as well get used to it, it's not going to change. Oh the insanity of the Apple iPhone ads. They show the user panning over the NY Times website front page and it looks like paper news. What a joke. 25 years from now today's kids will look at that as the definition of insane.
John Dvorak: "This is so easy that I'm going insane!"
Glenn Fleishman: "The iPhone has a very small screen compared to even the tiniest laptop."
