Very Cool Newspaper Tool

Choose a location on the map, click on the dot representing a newspaper published there, select the language you want to read it in, and bingo! there it is. I just had a look at today's news from Helsinki. OK, using Google Translate does not produce perfect translations--is there really a "National Coalition Party vice chairman of of young rape opinions"? Still, it's amazing, quick, and free. And the original ads appear, so there is even some chance the newspaper will make some money by providing its content.
Thanks to Max Weinstein for pointing this out.
