I didn't think I'd like it as much as I already do, but Sploid is pretty damn good. Simple, bold headlines that grab your attention and are presented in a nicer format than something like the drudge report, and it's got none of the pesky personal politics of drudge (yet). Denton should have done this site years ago.
The funny thing is when you realize this "fresh new take" on the news is just another view of things commonly seen on weblogs like delicious links or link sidebars. In fact, with about 15 minutes of tweaking, I could create a clone of sploid that used my delicious feed as the source for headlines. I just might do that later tonight, as a lark.
