News channel, CNN, just bought iPad's personalized digital magazine -- Zite.

CNN confirmed last Tuesday that they’ve just acquired Zite, a news reading application for the iPad tablet computer. Like AOL’s “Editions”, the Zite app is also considered to be a personalized digital magazine that learns about its readers’ needs and tries to provide helpful stories. All of its content are based from hundreds of different websites, including Google Reader, social networking sites and other self-defined preferences.
