We know you’re busy – You’ve got big holiday travel plans, and it’s hard to keep up with your favorite news and blogs on the go.

When you hear that 30 states have enacted distracted driving laws, what comes to mind? Texting and driving?
Unfortunately, the problem is much bigger.
Due to the explosive growth in smartphone sales, a lot more than texting is going on behind the wheel. Given that 26% of Americans now read news on mobile devices, here at BuzzVoice, we decided to develop an app specifically designed to make keeping up with news in the car a safe, enjoyable experience. It has ONE button. And, of course, it talks.

Tonight, 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]

The 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…
