This episode of the Playcast gives you a number of options by which you can get breaking news alerts on your mobile phone, so that you are always in the loop when something important is happening.
In the aftermath of the Mumbai attacks, we have had requests from a number of people asking us how they can ensure that they are kept informed
when something happens. We are aware that there is always a natural time lag between a news occurence and people finding out about it, especially for people who work in offices that do not have television services
The options we give you in this episode are all on the basis that if you have a mobile phone you can always stay in touch. They are listed as follows:
* CNN - IBN alerts - activate by sending a mail to im@ibnalerts.com
* imified.com
* smsgupship - a social driven media website with some good news “groups”
* the India times 58888 news service
* twitter - www.twitter.com
