Flipboard: Get social news on your iPad

JD LasicaBy now you may have heard the buzz about Flipboard, probably the coolest app invented for Apple’s iPad. (I’ll be getting both later this year.)

The Flipboard is a personalized social magazine that lets you flip through the content being shared with you across your social networks. (On Socialbrite today we have a Q&A with a developer of paper.li, a free service that lets you create media-rich publications based on any Twitter profile, list or hashtag.)

With Flipboard you can build a custom magazine, either by choosing from its pre-built curated “boards” or by importing Twitter profiles and lists. For instance, you can turn Robert‘s or TechCrunch‘s tweets into a sleek magazine-like interface that’s more fun and easier to read than any other reader.

In this 28-minute interview for RackSpace’s building43 series on cutting-edge technology, my buddy Robert Scoble chats with Mike McCue, co-founder and CEO of Flipboard, about his company, his business philosophy, where he’s planning to take his company — plus a demo of the new app.
