Mashable Asks: Can Robots Run the News? BuzzVoice Video Response

Can Robots Run the NewsTonight, while checking flights on my computer, I had my iPhone on my desk, streaming my favorite blogs on the new BuzzVoice 3.0 app. After listening to a story from The iPhone Blog, I was about to close BuzzVoice and head up to bed.

However, before I could hit the home button on my iPhone, a story by Mashable, titled “Can Robots Run the News?,” started playing. Given the way I was consuming this news – by sitting back and letting BuzzVoice do all the work – the title struck me as ironic.

I listened to the story twice, then picked up my other iPhone to film my response to Mashable writer Sarah Kessler’s question. Given that I co-created BuzzVoice, my answer might surprise you. Check out the short video. What do you think? Can Robots Run the News? [Good Night - John]

Pre-launch Preview: The All New BuzzVoice 3.0 for iPhone

BuzzVoice 3.0's Streaming PlayerThe number of Americans accessing news and blogs on mobile devices has exploded recently, thanks in part to “the smartphone revolution”. A recent report by Pew Internet estimates a full 26% of us now get news on-the-go.

Unfortunately, many sites aren’t optimized for the on-the-go news experience, requiring users to search, sift and read on tiny mobile screens. Couple that with the fact that roaming users often need their hands or eyes for other things, like driving, working out, or watching for that UPS truck while crossing the street, and the task can be downright dangerous.

If you’re a BuzzVoice user, you know that our magical service lets you listen to your favorite news & blogs everywhere. And, after months’ of feedback from users and publishers, we’re excited to say…

The All New BuzzVoice 3.0 Is Coming Soon

BuzzVoice 3.0 sports 6 revolutionary new features for on-the-go news consumers and will run on the original iPhone, iPhone 3G & 3GS, iPhone 4, iPod touch, and iPad. It’s never been easier to keep up with your favorite topics, while increasing productivity. And, if you know how to use Pandora, or an iPod, you already know how to use it.

Look for a chance to win a free copy of BuzzVoice 3.0 on some of the web’s top blogs soon. Once Apple has approved the new app, we’ll post more details, and a download link here. In the meantime, we would love to hear your thoughts at feedback@BuzzVoice.com.
