Government shutdownFederal Shutdown

Not sure which is more telling -- having the federal government shut down, or having an app that brings you the latest news and status of the shutdown. But, of course, there's an app for that. It pulls in news and pulls up the U.S. Office of Personnel Management's Operating Status and Schedules page, telling federal employees whether they have to report to work.

Of course, a 99-cent app that aggregates free news and merely pulls up a web page you can see anytime in a browser -- again, for free -- is a bit, well, as ridiculous as the government having to shut down in the first place. Anyhoo, links are after the break. Thanks, Dave.
