Early this morning a cup of coffee and a view out the window were enough to get the day started.
I have started to find live news feeds on YouTube. A wide variety of traditional news networks provide streams now on YouTube. Sometimes in the past I have watched the Yahoo! Finance live show online. It generally provides a good background soundtrack to what the economy is doing on a daily basis. Part of giving up cable is being a little more willing to hunt down new sources of content. For the most part, switching over to reading economic news vs. watching it happen live is not a big inconvenience.
