    I love the Zite news app, the interface, the content, everything. It is truly excellent for bringing stories that you can't normally get online.

    Apparently CNN bought them today for $25 million. Does anyone have any thoughts on whether or not CNN will mess with the content? I don't mind CNN in small doses but it's the richness of content of Zite that I love. Don't screw with that CNN.

    Am I the only one that had never heard of Zite until all the news about CNN buying them?

    No, I've never heard of them until this thread. I love CNN though.

    I'm with the OP on Zite, it is one of my most favorite apps. I too am a bit concerned with their acquisition by CNN. CNN states they will leave them as a stand alone unit, so hopefully they won't ruin a great app.

    Ahhh it is like Flipboard and just happens to rhyme with *****... I guess Flipboard wasn't for sale so they went with an imitation.

    This is my favorite app. Clipboard is ok. I much prefer this interface. I hope CNN doesn't mess with it!
