    Makes news hunting a lot easier, but only if you know what your looking for ;)

    Thanks for this info.

    Cool feature from Google. Thanks for the news. I guess this could be my new home page for my browser :D

    BTW, are there any legal implications to this "news grabbing"?

    I don't think so, Google will send A LOT of daily traffic to all those websites, so, I don't think anyone will ever complain ;)

    I am sure that most sites will be able to handle it, but I guess you never know. And if there is a problem, I am sure they can be removed from the search. But I think this is a good idea, so you don't have to sift through all the other stuff that comes up when you type in something important in the news.

    True enough. Most of the sites indexed/searched are huge sites. Perhaps Google will be able to open up a new possibility of a revenue stream here.

    Wonder how often the news are updated...

    searches the latest headlines from about 100 news sources every hour, allowing Web surfers to pull up articles from the previous seven days.

    It kinda makes you wonder what else they're capable of searching for. They've kinda conquered with the web search, which then included search in PDF files, then came the images, newsgroups and now news from other sites. What else have they missed out?
