Breaking News Alert – That’s So 30-Minutes Ago!

Okay, we all suffer from pets, and one of me gets a news alert called “Breaking News” and then for the next two hours I get the same story from 10 different sources of information. It seems to me that the situation is getting a little out of control, and perhaps this is one of the problems associated with having media applications on personal technical devices or subscribing to mailing lists. Send news from a variety of media outlets via email. Someone needs to fix it because it’s getting so ridiculous that it’s completely unnecessary, and it’s a waste of time because users have to delete everything. Okay, let’s talk.

Someone needs to create an app that scans all the words you receive in the news messages you receive and doesn’t duplicate the “latest news” on multiple media. Suppose you read the New York Times, your local USA Today newspaper, and you’ve received e-mail notifications from some TV channels or subscribe to their apps. In this case, for example, if a known person has passed away, the application will analyze all the information contained in it, and if new information about the latest news from another media channel appears from the last alert, it will simply send it. to remote. Box.

Let me give you an example of why I even decided to write this article. I recently felt an earthquake, no more than 40 miles away. Less than 3 minutes later, I received a new 5.5-magnitude earthquake warning. I got this news report before I had time to go to my computer and search the California Institute of Technology’s online reports on earthquakes that people in California often do. Then, for about an hour and a half, I continued to receive messages from all types of news organizations, including the New York Times, The Washington Post, and the Miami Herald.

yes, I understand that these papers are quite far away, and that’s probably not a problem for them, but I thought it was nonsense, because I felt it for more than an hour and a half, I don’t need anyone to help me tell me that there was an earthquake. In addition, it seemed as if they were all duplicates, as if the Associated Press had printed it and spread it across all the newspapers, and they simply replayed it in all the email boxes of their subscribers. Enough is enough. Think about it and think about it all.
