Yahoo!, um AP! News

One of the websites I frequent is Yahoo! Finance. You can use Bloomberg or Reuters or a handful of other ones, but I find Yahoo! to be the most convenient. One of the things I like about it is the news feed right in the middle. I was wondering the other day what I would do if something happened to !Yahoo and where I would be getting my quick news fix from. Well I looked into it and it turns out that most of the new on Yahoo! News is actually from the Associated Press( AP). Why not go straight to the source then? Well it looks like the Yahoo! Website is a bit more user friendly and looks nicer than the AP website. But I also found out that the AP has a great iphone app! I downloaded it when it was still in version 1.something and really liked it. They recently updated to 2.0 which signifies a big upgrade. Sadly since my ipod touch is using the 3.0 OS it turns out it isn’t working quite yet with that app but I am looking forward to seeing how it turns out.
