Road Runner

Road Runner is a Macromedia Flash based news portal from Time Warner Cable. While the content might not be interesting to all audiences, especially web designers, who want to broaden their horizons of usability and accessibilty.

The portal as a whole is very nicely integrated - which is mainly due to Macromedia Flash. The site is organized into highly customizable and personalizable pods. For a portal this makes good sense, especially since media is seamlessly integrated.

You also have some options on the appearence like font-size and contrast to aid accessibilty. Also the help-system ist nicely integrated into the site, playing movies that explain what to do on the site and how to do it.

On the downside I have yet not found any permanent URL links or ways to generate favorites... just have a look and judge for yourself.
