He did not have any more information.
So I try all the BIG news sources, including the official Pakistani Press, NO News.
Head over to [news.google.com...] > type in the deceased mans name, and up comes a story from a small Indian news site giving details.
I then call the man back in the village informing him of what/who/where and when this attack took place.
I think he is still in shock at the speed I relayed information, considering I am 000s of miles away sitting in my room.
Google News Rocks!
(its frightening how much technology/internet/google are changing the world)
News sources shouldnt be too worried. You still have to click to them to get the full story.
I work in Telecoms and whenever we hear a rumour about a development on the market we only need to go to Google News to verify the facts.
I also use it to see what contracts have been one by my customers. I just need to type in "Nokia Bulgaria" and I see everything that's happened there in the last few weeks. It keeps us streets ahead of the competition.
Google deserves accolades. I might even be prepared to pay for it!
Even so, Google has done a very good job.
I don't thing the newspapers should be so worried but maybe the wire services like AP and Reuters should. Also I'm sure the other news agrigators have to be worried.
As for the advertising, this is the sort of service that we would certainly find interesting as part of our marketing!
