Intelligent News delivered in an iPad app

Sky News launched their iPad app a little while ago and I really like how it delivers the stories. This is not about the quality of the news, balanced views or sensationalising.  Those are completely different issues.  This is about their iPad app.  Normally stories are delivered with just once piece of video or text.  This app attempts to provide some intelligence with each story.  When you click on a story other areas related to this topic fan out around the video piece thus making the story much richer and detailed than a normal simple video.  This is a better use of this type of tool.  I look forward to when these apps will auto link relevant text\pieces to other sites and resources of such as blogs, wikis, news, data to help provide background and even more detail if people choose to view it.
