A world news consoliditor - a recommendation

Postby JR8 » Tue, 05 Mar 2013 7:35 pm

I came upon this website this morning, and have never seen anything like it before. (Maybe others have, but I'm pretty wowed by it!).

I like the way you can filter what the topic is that interests you by category (down the left), and how specific. There is a separate 'keyword search' box, also upper left, for going down that route.

Science news from around the world? No problem. It is then further broken down by say 'last 10 minutes', 'last 30 minutes', 'last hour'... 'last week' and so on. Each article headline is also marked with a little flag for country of origin of the story.

Want to drill-down further? No problem, it offers pop-up options of available sub-topics (going this route appears limited to three levels).

Science > Particle physics > Higgs Boson particle

So if I say want to check for any news reported in the Indian media, this past week, on the Higgs Boson particle - it is as easy as that...


www.newsnow.co.uk

[I have no connection to this website at all... (but I wish I had have thought up the concept! :)]

p.s. I only found the site this morning, so I expect it might have some other 'tricks up it's sleeve'.

I preferred it when he just made records (damn good ones at that, sadly missed).

been using newsnow for over 2 years now, what I do is type "keyword" + newsnow in google
eg: arsenal fc + newsnow

its a pretty cool article aggregation service.
To get there early is on time and showing up on time is late
