Its software, also known as Flipboard, was first released in July 2010 an is within the arsenal of research and aggregating tools employed by this blogger.

Two of the three aggregated FLIPS above deal with cancer, something of which I have more than a passing familiarity.
This blogger joined the cancer community when a mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) DX (diagnosis) came in 2006, just prior to a 58th birthday. Now at age 70, I have been in full remission since late 2009. That status was only achieved after some 16 months or various rounds of chemotherapy followed by an allogeneic stem cell transplant on August 22, 2007, from an unrelated German donor.
After a brief relapse in the fall of 2009, I was successfully treated with Tomotherapy (targeted radiation), while remaining in full remission since that time.
The cancer journey has brought me in touch with a host of other survivors, one of whom is Max Wood, a frequent contributor on this message board, who once offered the following data:
“In the U.S. I think we all know that MCL represents about five percent (5%) of all Non-Hodgkin Lymphomas (NHL). That equates to roughly 5,000 to 6,000 cases a year. There are roughly 75,000 cases of NHL a year. I recently read that NHL is also rare in that it occurs in about four percent (4%) of all cancer patients. According to the American Cancer Society, there are about 1,700,000 cases of cancer diagnosed each year. Four percent of that would equate to 680,000 annual cases.
“So, MCL is far less than .5% of all cancers. That’s a small number — unless it is one of us :-).
“That’s one of the best reasons I can think of that we should always seek out a specialist at a top MCL center if we end up as one of the .5%.”
