Microsoft web portal MSN has unveiled a test, or beta, service called MSN Newsbot to search news in the languages of four countries – the UK, France, Italy and Spain. MSN Newsbot is an experimental, automated news service that gathers news from more than 4,000 sources online, according to the Newsbot website.
That reminds me of something.

It is interesting that my daily Silicon email didn't carry that story. Proof positive that they do tailor their feed based on previous click through information I guess.
In that case, it should work for 800 by 600...where's their design team when you need them, eh?
On the UK site, we have a story about Richard Burns (Rally Driver) who has a brain tumour. The picure is a chinese man, burning a chinese flag! Now, that it is a serious problem. Although it is a serious problem to start off with, imagine if the picture was of children and the story was about paedophiles.... I think it would cause problems for MSN in the UK.
Not good for a first experience, but hopefully they'll get it fine tuned.
