What kind of new bits and bobs are you seeing? Does anything line up with the plans Eric Schmidt discussed here [thewrap.com]?

Here's the official announcement about the new look at Google News [googlenewsblog.blogspot.com] - which is now rolled out everywhere. The high points seem to be:

1. New color frames around each section
2. YouTube logos to embedded news videos
3. Section pages (Top Stories, Business etc) now feature the media files from partners

New color frames around each section

They're using the AdWords pastel palette... so light I didn't even notice. ;)
