Flipboard, a new iPad application aiming to become your personal newspaper, promises to make the digital reading experience interactive, personalized, and further connected to your online friends.

At first glance, the most intriguing aspect of Flipboard is, you guessed it, the flipping.  Just open the Flipboard app on your iPad and start practicing that old flick-of-the-wrist move to turn the pages.  Turning the iPad rearranges the layout of the page and further invites you to click on and enlarge the text of appealing articles.  With all the physical tapping and sliding and turning of the device, the experience of using Flipboard almost simulates the reading a traditional print magazine.
