Google News RSS and Atom Feeds Reviewed
How will Google benefit from this? Well, although Google News is already regarded as the one of the top news portals for up to date news aggregation and search results, it is experiencing major competition from other news sites such as chúng tôi and Yahoo News. Add Moreover News, MSN Newsbot, and Technorati or Feedster into the equation and you have a field of competition which are all working on cutting edge syndication techniques and partnerships with larger web portals, newspaper sites, local search and blogs.
Darren Rowse from ProBlogger : ProBloggers and RSS addicts everywhere are jumping up and down in their boxer shorts because Google News has finally added RSS feeds to its service! Wooohooo! I’ve just spent the last 30 minutes adding a series of feeds to my Bloglines account and am looking forward to seeing how it works. Hopefully this will eliminate quite a few News Alert emails each day and speed up my blogging.
MarketingStudies.net’s RSS Diary : It finally happened. Google now provides RSS feeds for all chúng tôi searches, bringing you latest Google News content straight to your RSS reader. Perhaps more important is that Google allows webmasters to display syndicated Google News content on their sites, albeit under a noncommercial use policy.
Luis Suarez : The reason why this is big news is not just because here we have got another large corporation embracing the usage of RSS to enhance end-users’ web surfing experience but more than anything else because it is about time that Google realises that Really Simple Syndication has become much more powerful than originally expected and cannot be ignored, nor denied. So you might as well embrace it and try to make the best out of it.
And that is exactly what Google has done. They are now offering RSS feeds for their News service and not only that but they have also added Atom support (Talking about following web standards). However, something tells me that this may be just the beginning as we have seen how Google has also embraced RSS feeds in their Personalised Google Home, so that people can subscribed to their favourite resources from there, too.
So expect to see some further news in this respect as I do not think Google would just stop at that. And if not time will tell. For the time being, though, it is now time to subscribe to some of the feeds in order to keep up to date with what is happening around the world, business and technology. Well done, folks ! About time, but well done !

Google News has become one of the most widely used and recognized ways to search through web stories that are fresh off the presses. That may be partially due to the overall popularity of Google and the fact that Google provides some news stories on its SERP for about one in six queries. But Google News was not a part of the original game plan for the company. Rather, it was a direct result of September 11th. In the decade since, Google News has grown immensely, and news of the death ofOsama Bin Laden – the instigator of the events of 9/11 – brings the site’s capabilities into a definitive new light.
September 11th created a new and unprecedented search for information online. “People around the world were trying to comprehend what had just happened,” says Krishna Barat, the original founder and current head of Google News, “and its implications to public safety, foreign policy, financial markets, and their own lives.” But the Google algorithm was simply insufficient to handle new information: ranking relied on having hyperlinks from numerous sites, and thus naturally avoided fresh content.
That’s why “storyrank” was invented. Storyrank attempts to examine the current news stories and see, based on how many groups are covering the same story, just how important a given topic is. This combines with numerous additional signals to create a news ranking system that is both effective and fast. With the development of storyrank, as well as Google News on the whole, the death of Bin Laden – as well as the details surrounding it – is being reviewed with far greater depth and breadth than it would have been given the tools of one decade ago.
In the first five days of May, the week after Bin Laden’s death, Google has compiled more than 150,000 pages that discuss Bin Laden’s death. Searches both in the news category and on standard Google searches have skyrocketed for terms about Bin Laden, his location, the U.S. military action, and much more. In many ways, the death of Bin Laden represents the close of a chapter in U.S. history, and serves as an ideal (and poignant) mile marker to guage the progress of how we think of the news.

Your tech news digest, by way of the DGiT Daily tech newsletter , for Tuesday, 17 November 2023.
1. OPPO X 2023
OPPO has a rollable phone that looks ready for 2023, and actually cool? I doubt affordable will be an adjective that goes with the device, but it is going to be fun.
Anyway, it actually looks …pretty awesome:
What’s on show is clearly a best-case scenario where the transition from smartphone to the wider tablet view is likely rendered to be that smooth on the display. But the motorized function looks great.
Speculation is that it’s all thanks to Samsung Display technology that OPPO is working with here, though no details have emerged.
LG is working on a rollable phone of its own, with a design leaked out in September, with Korean media reporting a March 2023 launch. LG has its own capable display technology.
We’ve asked OPPO for more details regarding the X 2023’s display and the chances of a commercial release, but hadn’t received a reply at the time of hitting send.

Google has agreed to reach agreements to pay French news organizations for use of their content in Google News. The agreement follows a ruling by the French Competition Authority in April 2023 that found Google’s activities had harmed French news organizations.
A translated version of the 2023 decision (Google Suffers Major Defeat – Must Pay French Publishers) stated:
“Google unilaterally decided that it would no longer display article extracts, photographs and videos within its various services, unless the publishers give it to them, free of charge.
In practice, the vast majority of press publishers have granted Google free licenses for the use and display of their protected content, without negotiation and without receiving any remuneration from Google.”
The French authority ordered Google to negotiate a fair way to compensate French news organizations and that’s what has been announced.Google Announcement on Official French Blog
Google published an announcement in the French language version of their blog.
According to a translation of Google’s official announcement:
“This agreement sets out the principles according to which Google will negotiate individual license agreements with members of the Alliance whose publications are recognized as ‘Political and General Information’, while reflecting the principles established by law. …and will open access to News Showcase, a new press publications licensing program recently launched by Google, which will give readers access to rich content.”
Google will negotiate a license with individual French news organizations, with the amount of payments to be based on agreed upon metrics such as how many subscriptions and how many daily Internet visitors a news organization enjoys.
“The remuneration provided for in the license agreements between each newspaper publisher and Google is based on criteria such as, for example, the contribution to political and general information, the daily volume of publications or the monthly Internet audience.”Google News Showcase
The Google News Showcase is a way to pay news organizations in order to license their content for use. This includes paying for access to paywalled content.
Paywall content is content that is available to readers with a paid subscription.
In a June 2023 announcement, Google describes News Showcase like this:
“Where available, Google will also offer to pay for free access for users to read paywalled articles on a publisher’s site. This will let paywalled publishers grow their audiences and open an opportunity for people to read content they might not ordinarily see.
We have been actively working with our publisher partners on this new product which will launch first on Google News and Discover.”Citations Read the official announcement on Google France Blog:

Google Search is gaining the Full Coverage feature for breaking news results which provides more context about stories from multiple sources.
Full Coverage was first introduced in Google News in 2023. Google promised a wider rollout to regular search results in 2023, but that never materialized.
Now, two years later than expected, Full Coverage is finally available in search results.
If you’re not a regular user of the Google News app you may never have encountered Full Coverage before. Here’s more about what it is and how it may help drive more traffic to publishers.What is Google’s Full Coverage Feature?
Google’s Full Coverage uses artificial intelligence to connect related stories together in real-time.
As the name implies, Full Coverage is designed to give users a complete look at how a story is being reported on from a variety of sources. It helps users follow the story as it progresses.
This is not a feature that will be available for every news story. Full Coverage is primarily used for stories that develop over a period of time.
For example, the launch of a new iPhone is not likely to trigger Google’s Full Coverage feature because that’s an event that happens once and then it’s done.
An event like the COVID-19 pandemic is much more likely to trigger the Full Coverage feature as it’s a story that evolves over time.
This feature will surface more sources in search results for certain stories, which has the potential to drive more traffic.
There’s no special way to optimize news articles for Google’s Full Coverage other than to publish the news and optimize the web page as you normally would. Google decides when it’s necessary to utilize Full Coverage.
Google’s AI is capable of understanding the people, places, and things involved in a story and how they relate to each other. Full Coverage organizes articles into storylines as the news event unfolds.
There are no human editors involved in curating the stories and the results included in the Full Coverage section are not personalized. Everyone sees the same storyline.What Does Full Coverage Look Like?
When searching for information on a breaking news story, users will see a View Full Coverage button after scrolling to the end of the top stories carousel.
A View Full Coverage button can also be found by selecting “More news on…” right below the top stories carousel.
“With this launch, we’re introducing new technology that is able to detect long-running news stories that span many days, like the Super Bowl, to many weeks or months like the COVID-19 pandemic. We then organize the Full Coverage page to help people easily find top news along with additional content like explainers and local coverage that are helpful to understanding these complex stories.”
Full Coverage is available in Google’s mobile search results starting today in US English. It will be rolled out to more countries and more locations in the coming months.
SONOS Digital Music System Reviewed
The Sonos Digital Music System is the must have home audio system for today’s digital music lovers. The system allows for digital music from multiple sources to be wirelessly streamed to multiple zones and controlled from multiple locations to play in synchronization or to each play different music. All this might be expected from a home audio system, but the key here is the super easy wireless setup, the convenient Rhapsody integration, and the clean modest design that fits well in any room. This system makes a mighty contender for your wallet this holiday season, and I got my lucky hands on a set for a test drive.
My experience with it was great and I have to say it in the spirit of the golden arches that I’m lov’n it. I am more the typical mp3 hording, iPod toting individual and not an extreme decked out audiophile, and so I feel unqualified to really judge the sound quality. But to my untrained ears, I found the sound quality to be superb.
For reviewing purposes, the folks at Sonos were so kind to provide a ZP80 Bundle that consisted of one controller with charging cradle and two ZP80s. This was enough to setup a basic two-room system. One of the ZP80s must be connected directly to a home network such as a cable or DSL modem via an ethernet connection, while the other ZP80 is free to be placed in some other room. Both ZP80s must then be connected to a stereo or amplifying receiver (not included) via the supplied RCA cable.
The ZonePlayer 80
The ZonePlayer 80s have a sleek and clean design that fits nicely with most décor and coexist well with any home theater or stereo system. They sit quite well atop my old-school-ish black stereo systems, pictures of which you’ll see later. On the front are a mute button, a LED light, and a volume control button, while on the back are two ethernet jacks, optical and coaxial digital outputs, analog input/outputs, and a power supply jack. The overall dimensions measure about 5-inch-wide by 5-inch-deep by 3-inch-high. The package comes with a manual, a system setup software disc, and four cables.
The Controller and Cradle
The controller has a very simple and clean iPod-ish feel. Most notable similarity is the touch-sensitive scroll-wheel and the minimal array of buttons. The charging dock or cradle can be placed on your table top or mounted on a wall. The power adapter plug can be removed from the cradle and plugged directly into the controller if you should wish to do so.
Setup and Installation
Since I don’t have an incredibly large and impressive collection of MP3s I opted for my first test run to do the super quick and easy, PC-free setup. There was no need to turn on my computer or install any software whatsoever. And in exactly 5 minutes, the beautiful melodies of chart topping tracks began flowing through my speakers courtesy of the included 30-day free trial of Rhapsody music service. The setup and music access was so easy that I was tempted to just sit back and enjoy the next 30 days. But, instead I repeated the process to take some pictures to prove to you folks just how easy it was.
Before I went about setting up the ZP80s, I made sure to plug in the controller and cradle for charging up.
Then, I setup one ZP80 in my home office next to my cable modem and wireless router. Any router would do, but I happened to have a wireless one. Having to connect one of the ZPs to the router via an ethernet cable was probably the only annoying limitation for me since I had a wireless router that I usually kept in a storage room. Now I had to pull it out and put it in my office next to my stereo. But nonetheless, I hooked it all up in no time. Power supply in, RCA cable in, and ethernet in. Done.
Next, I setup the second ZP80 in my living room. And this setup is even easier. Power supply in. RCA cable in. Done. No need for the ethernet connection on this one, as this ZP communicates wirelessly with the other ZP already connected to the router.
The Controller Interface
I took one video of the interface in action and some other screenshots.
Working with PC and Mac
So, the system is spectacular in its simplicity and quality while playing songs off Rhapsody, but how does it do with an existing collection of MP3s? Well, for that I installed the software on to both my PC and Macbook Pro. And again, within minutes I am playing music off both of them with ease. The software setup was incredibly fast and below is a screenshot of the Desktop Controller that shows up after the install is finished. I had to set up the music library and let the software index my songs, but that process was fairly intuitive.
The unfortunate part, but expectedly so, was that songs purchased off iTunes could not be played on the Sonos, at least not directly. Sonos claims that it is compatible with iTunes, but only so much in that it can play imported playlists from iTunes that consist of songs that were not purchased from the iTunes music store. So, what good does that do? Nothing really. A potential solution around this is connecting your PC or Mac directly to one of the ZPs via the included RCA mono-to-stereo cable and play your iTunes music as a line-in option. But then again, why make this effort, when you can probably find all the same songs on Rhapsody, play them and transfer them unlimited times, and get Rhapsody Radio for just $14.99 a month.
Line-In from other Audio Devices
Sonos lets you play music from external audio sources such as a CD player, portable MP3 player, or even your television via the line-in option. I decided to try and hook up my Sansa e280 MP3 player to the system using the included RCA mono-to-stereo cable. I was able to have both zones playing songs from my Sansa, and I could play, pause, and adjust the volume for each zone separately. But besides play, pause, and volume there was little else I could control, such as skipping forward or backwards and browsing the playlist. All that still had to be adjusted on the line-in source, the Sansa.
This system gets a big thumbs up. It’s not your traditional hefty audiophile wiring monstrosity that needs professional installation. Instead, it’s a clean and simple modular package for all music lovers that can be easily installed even by those with no sense of wiring, such as myself. To my untrained ears, the sound quality was excellent. The integrated Rhapsody music service makes getting new music very convenient and cost effective. Overall, the basic ability to wirelessly stream music from multiple sources to multiple zones while being able to sychronize the music in all zones as well as separately control the music in each zone via multiple controllers or computers makes one drown in a pool of drool. The price tag is a mighty $999 for this ZP80 bundle that I got my lucky hands on. But sadly I must bid it farewell as it is a review unit. Additional ZP80s are $349.99 each and ZP100s are $499 each. OUCH. Yes, it hurts, but the pain is worth it. And when better to find an excuse for dropping a grand on home audio than this merry holiday season. It sure beats the $12k you’d have to spend for the Sooloos, although that has other merits of its own.
