news.google.ie improved

I learn what’s going on outside the computer world by reading google’s news site. This morning, I found that they’ve improved the interface for the page.

You can now rearrange the news categories how you want, increase/decrease the number of articles reported per category, and even remove categories you find completely boring. For example, I no longer have to hear about how some crappy tennis or football “star” is doing in some tournament somewhere.

Now, they just need to find some way if providing localised news… There is a “US” section, but every other country is lumped under “World”.

It would be nice if they could spell “customised” right as well, but I’m not greedy…
