    Being that I'm a mobile web user most of the time I really appreciate the addition of text only [google.com] news.google.com. It's not that the page didn't load fast enough as it was but the text only version is left justified and is rendered a lot better than it normally is.

    While you can modify the layout to left justify almost everything now it still doesn't remove the "customize this page" box and a couple of stories (from Top Stories) on the right side. Oh well it's still in beta ;)
    • I browse on a mobile phone, and its screen is teeny tiny (think 128x128 pixels). Google is clever enough to sniff the user-agent and provide a small, 5-result version for me, which I think is rather nice of it.

      It's a shame this only works for web searching, not Groups or News. News returns a file too big error, even with the text-only version you mentioned. Is there a way to get a mini-version of the news site as well?

      i hate it when search engines say "text version" when in reality its just "less html", look at the google "text" page bullshit
      it has images,colours,tables,fonts,css,script, in fact all the things that somebody expecting a "text" doesn't want, its pretty obvious they fail to see the whole point of having a "text" mode

      call it "lite html version" but "text version" it certainly aint

    • Shameless plug ahead: my newsbot [memigo.com] (which predates Google News BTW), has a text version [memigo.com] which is not only geared for thin devices (PDAs/phones) but also links to news article versions that are also lightweight. Try it out.
    • I agree, I've always used the text option on all of my computers. I've always been for more information and less crap on a page. (The same with slashdot- haven't seen the full blown puke green layout in 5 or 6 years.)

      The problem so far is that after you customize the news, it's not custom on the text page. They could let you choose which headings to view and the number of stories in each heading. That would be cool.

      More function, less form.

          While I mostly agree with what your'e saying with regards to google's benevolence, you CAN'T argue that when they do things, they do them pretty well. They DO have the most useful and least obtrusive search engine. Their email system has the best interface I'VE ever used for a web client, and it's lightening fast compared to all the other biggies (yahoo, hotmail). Their new map system is really fast and easy to use - missing a few features, not ready for primetime, but still faster and easier than mapquest or yahoo! maps.

          The Slashdot community is acting like a bunch of little fan-boys--big surprise--but that doesn't mean that they're not at least in part correct. As long as google keeps doing things right, WHATEVER their motive (which is obviously to make money), peopel are gonna continue to love and praise them.

        That is a constant worry because when companies try to cover everything like Microsoft, they seem to stop innovating on the products that made them what they are in the first place. Google is much better then Yahoo by having many built in functions accessed through the search field instead of displaying them on their home page.

    I think it's great. I'm a Canadian, currently in Chile, and in preparations for a move to Mexico. I am interested in US News, Canadian News, Mexican News, and International News. I could care less about Sports, Entertainment, and Health News, so I get rid of them. This is even better than workspaces for me.

    Good work google.
    • Same thing here, I used to switch between the Swiss, French and US google news sites. Now I can use a single page with the news I am interested in.

      One nice feature would be able to select news geographically (in particular for local news). Countries are not really a good granularity when you are close to the border. I suppose the ideal solution would be to have new geo-tagged, but we are not here yet.



      • That's an excellent idea, you should develop it some more and sell it to Google :) I'm sure they's find good use for it. As I find myself moving about in this world, being able to get the information most relevant to my situation is becoming more difficult.

        One example would be very useful, I think, would be the ability to select one or more countries to search in from the main Web search. Currently Google does this for the country specific subdomains (google.cl lets me restrict search to Chilean pages)
      • I also wanted local news. What I did was create two new categories with keywords of the cities I live in. The keywords work really well and I see mostly relevant content. Give it a try.
    • US News, Canadian News

      Isn't that pretty much the same thing?

      Sorry, couldn't resist. :)

        On the serious side, the news that shows up for Canada and the US is wildy different from google news. I get tidbits of news from the cities where my family lives. I don't think anything that happens in Calgary will make the US news page unless it affects US Interests.
    • The first thing I did was think "yeah, this could be a really cool way to compare news bias..."

      So I added two sections side by side: one from the UK "World News" section, and the other from the US "World News" section.

      But there's one feature I could really do with in Google News: the ability to customise news sources. Currently they link to stories from all sorts of new sources, and some of them I prefer not to use for one of various reasons (sites that always require registration are annoying). It would be great if they allowed users to create a whitelist or blacklist of news sources they want stories from.

    However, they won't be able to do so without becoming an ISP. So the question is, where and when will Google break into the ISP market so they can capture a gauranteed customer base to compete with Yahoo and MSN?

      Why does google need to be an ISP?

      I don't think google is worried about capturing a guaranteed customer base, because they already have one. If somebody is doing a web search, the plurality of users already come to google. As long as they keep adding more features, I dont think they are going to have to worry about losing these users to Yahoo/MSN.

      Also, if somebody wants to switch search engines from yahoo->google, they just change the URL. But if google gets into the ISP market, what incentive is there for people already happy with their Yahoo DSL service or Verizon/MSN Service to switch? They may save a few bucks (assuming google can even field a more competitive price), but they have to go through the entire hassle of changing ISPs just so they can have google automatically be their homepage?
      • Pardon my ignorance, but Yahoo DSL service? Aside from their webhosting foray, my impression was that the extent of the Yahoo name involvement is little more than co-branding. My own case as an example, SBC provides the service, and Yahoo provides a portal which I'm supposed to find use for.
      • I think google should be concerned about a guaranteed customer base...a good article on thestreet.com pointed out today that some students in Shanghai could come up with a better search tommorow and we would switch (we all switched from Webcrawler, to alta vista to yahoo and then to google...i personally have no loyalty). All these new features they are putting out now are attempts to get people locked into their services. Not that an ISP would be the way they would go, but if it works for yahoo they may.

      Just like almost any other web service out there, if you're uncomfortable using it, don't sign up. That's pretty simple.

      Google News is good enough on its own without requiring the user to login and customize the search, so it's not like they're forcing you to provide your data. It's 100% opt-in.

      Additionally, since a free email account can be 100% anonymous (unless they subpoena your name from your ISP, which they can't do on their own), there's no way to link all that data to an actual person. Think Google is invading your privacy? Change your account once in a while or don't sign up to begin with.

    When I saw this story my initial reaction was to jump for joy. I'm an avid Google News user particularly because it's so "Googleized"; i.e. they use statistical methods to cluster stories together and figure out which ones to display where and in what order. Others may do this as well, but Google News does an exceptionally good job.

    So when I saw that they had added personalization, I assumed it was going to be something along the same lines, something that does my thinking FOR me, thank you very much. For example, wouldn't it be cool for the news page to adapt organically in response to stories you click on? So it would realize that I'm a golf fan (yeah, yeah, I'm even dorkier than the average /. user) and stop displaying all those NFL and hockey stories in the Sports section that I couldn't care less about.

    Instead, we get the same basic layout customization and keyword matching that Yahoo has had for years (as many others have pointed out). I scratched my head for a few minutes about keywords I could use, but frankly my tastes are a bit too subtle to sum up in this way.

    This could be a real story, but only if Google works a little of their statistical magic instead of taking a me-too approach.

      Have you seen Findory.com [findory.com]? That's exactly what it does.

      It's a personalized news site. It learns from what you read and builds a personalized front page. Click on a few stories about golf, go back to the Findory front page, and Findory will show you articles related to golf.

    Whats the point? They still give me crappy sports stories on English Soccer and Indian cricket.

    Let me customize where I get the news from, then I'll be happy. Choosing how many stories I'd want to display just isn't enough.
  • The best part about this feature is maybe finally my front sports page for Yahoo will have American sports instead of Cricket, Euro league soccer, and whatever random sports are played elsewhere in the world that for some reason come up in the US version of the news portal. I remember the day after the Red Sox won the world series, it wasnt even on the front page cuz Indonesia beat India in a cricket match or something.
  • I used to love google news.

    I found the online format nicer then other news sites and a LOT nicer then dealing with a newspaper.

    Then I read the articles on slashdot about Google having a built in political bias as to which sources show up on google news and Google censoring itself on their Chinese site at the request of the government of the PRC.

    I also noticed that with American news outlets that South America does not exist and other countries only exist when they have direct dealings with the US ( a

    Just a few years ago, customized news was supposed to be one of the much-hyped big-money profit opportunities of the Internet, and... I'm trying to recall the names of some of the companies pursuing it as a business model... Individual?

    The theory was that busy executives with no time to read the whole Wall Street Journal and no interest in serendipitous discovery of significant news items would gladly pay to get the news filtered so that they only saw items in the preselected categories of interest.

    Yep, Individual.com [individual.com] still exists and appears to be operating on a business model of free-as-in-beer.

    May the potlatch continue!
  • I'd really like to not see the freak shot of the day with the latest Michael Jackson story. The guy goobs me out and if I could say 'if story about Michael Jackson then don't display' that'd be nice.
