This Showyou from VodPod might remind you of the amazing Flipboard - and it is certainly counting on that to get noticed - and trying to do the same thing, but focused on video content.
Unfortunately, unlike Flipboard, as soon as you start playing around with it, you can quickly notice it lacks the "polish" to make it truly outstanding. It offers little more than copying the Flipboard look - something you could almost do with Blogger's dynamic views - and goes as far as annoying you to login with your twitter or facebook account before you can even try it out. Even though it has its preselected content "beneath" the annoying popup window.
Unlike Flipboard, I can't really say I'd be willing to use it - but, nothing like trying it out for yourself and see if you get used to it.
