Webaroo allows you to download different web packs that contain different topics of interest like Nanotechnology News or even the Doctor Who Wiki. There are literally hundreds of web packs available in many different areas. If you're on vacation or can't get an Internet connection, you can first download the packs that interest you, and then search through them to find what you like. Many packs are updated daily so the pages that are included are very fresh.
For instance, the Silicon Valley News web pack contained leading stories from VentureBeat, The Mercury News, and Silicon.com about the Google-YouTube buyout, data security, and private equity.
This is such a neat idea, and I can see myself downloading, say, a copy of the Paris or Mumbai pack the next time I go on vacation.
