Why I love my homepage

For the last few years my homepage has been Google News. It provides a quick, simple, unbiased look at the most important news issues. It scours news sites from all over the country and world, from small town newspapers to major news groups like the Associated Press and the New York Times. They’ve recently updated their site to decrease redundancy by linking to original stories from the source. So, “instead of 20 ‘different’ articles (which actually used the exact same content), [Google News will show] the definitive original copy and give credit to the original journalist.” By removing the duplicate articles, more space on Google News will be taken up with original stories and viewpoints from around the world.

Other interesting Google News updates:
Allowing comments about the news from people in the news (Example)
Viewing Google News through pictures (Example)
