Google News Categories

Posted by Arcane Gazebo at February 17, 2004 11:58 AM

I've started using Google News lately. My only complaint is that it needs more categories. I'd like to see a "Politics" category rather than having to sift through the "US" section for politics stories, and similarly separate "Science" and "Technology" categories. It's easy to miss good science stories under the current setup; right now of the twenty stories under "Sci/Tech", sixteen are technology and only four are science (three of which are space science; this is also irritating).

On the other hand, my proposed scheme would take twice as long to browse.
