Best of WIRED on the go

It's great to be able to digest articles on the go thanks to this service. The half-dozen vocies that read me the latest WIRED articles have become SO familiar to me, I often hear their voices when I'm reading articles on my tablet!

Thanks for everything you read, you guys.
