    Having sat through countless boring lectures in school, my attention span for listening isn't very high. If yours is, you should try Umano, a news reader which literally reads the news to you. None of that text-to-speech stuff too—real people!

    This is a great way to know whats going on in the world without having to actually read the articles. Each article is read to you by a professional announcer and you can customize it to find the articles you are interested in daily.
