All the news ...

How do you like your news? Do you read your copy of The Globe and Mail or the local tab newspaper as you transit to work?

Or do you like viewing your news online using an archived broadcast like the ones on the Global TV site? Or do you download your news as a podcast?

Here’s a sampling of some of the varied ways you can have your news served up online:

Google News Alerts
Bring the news to you by asking Google News to send you an email alert for any topic you choose.

The Week in Rap
