Livestand from Yahoo! set to take on The Daily

Yahoo! has announced that it will be launching an iPad application that could rival the recently launched The Daily.  Coming in the first half of 2011, Livestand will be available for the iPad and will deliver news personalized to your interests, location and even time of day.
