Charge your cell phone now, and even if you lose power, you can still track Hurricane Sandy on your phone via The Weather Channel, which is live-streaming its coverage so people "can keep up with
the news on their mobile devices," writes David Bauder.
And the New York Times has suspended its paywall for all apps and its website for the duration, so you can read up on the storm and/or any other topic for distraction. The Wall Street Journal, Newsday and The Baltimore Sun are also freeing up website content, while the Boston Globe's storm coverage will be available gratis on boston.com.
