Headslinger.comWhat it does:
headslinger allows you to create a custom news list by news source, with categorization by folder. Its also suggests news sources based on your news consumption habits. Plus, you can see what everyone else is reading.

How it beats the competition:
News browsers are creatures of habit–vising a select group of the same front pages to scan headlines per day.  There are tools that aggregate and highlight news on a single-link level (digg, stumbledupon, facebook wall postings), but there is a gap for aggregating and people on the source level.  Additionally, RSS readers are too complex to set up for the average news browser and they don’t provide a level of social interaction or an easy way to discover new sources.  Headslinger content beyond the RSS feed, bringing in twitter and facebook activity, to act as a “dashboard” for thew news junkie.
