Google News graduates



One of Google’s longest Beta-tests… Google News has now graduated from beta status. There is a “suggest news stories” options in the personalized search feature. I wondered if it would ever be non-beta. Somewhere along the line I had read speculation that the holdup was advertising and there was trepidation that targetted ads within Google News would spur a revolt among the news feed providers. A quick look doesn’t seem to show any ads – so that speculation seems to have been a bit off the mark I guess.
