BBC alerts

You can now get a desktop application that alerts you to a big breaking news story, courtesy of the BBC. The BBC already offers news via email, but the alert will pop up in front of other applications when something big happens, so it should be faster than email. You need to download a small piece of software to get it working. It was developed for the BBC by Skinkers Communications who also created a similar product for Britain's Channel 4 and Sky News and for Disney. News International is thinking of using it here in Australia. Find out more at journalism.co.uk (http://www.journalism.co.uk/news/story863.shtml) who had the story or download the application from http://www.bbc.co.uk/breakingnews.
