Having the choice of .com or .co.uk was just perfect. If I wanted Google UK news i'd switch to google.co.uk, if I wanted Google US news i'd choose google.com. Now, it seems, that choice has been removed and I can now only get Google News UK (according to the logo).

Google has taken one of my toys away, and I want it back! ;)

...according to the logo

Do you mean that the url stays as google.com, but the logo switches to include the "UK"?

Yes, that's correct, and the news is UK news by default.

Engine, does [news.google.com...] work for you?

They switched it back today, so it was some kind of test.

Google do it again!

I wish 'they' would stop messing, this is a very frustrating user experience. Why do 'they' think 'they' know better.

If I choose google.com I want google.com If I choose google.co.uk I want the UK information!
