New news tailor

Google is giving its users the chance to tailor the news to fit their interests. As part of a new look unveiled Wednesday, the English-language version of Google's online news section is offering tools that will enable readers to specify what kinds of stories interest them. For instance, a reader can ask Google to highlight broad topics such as sports, entertainment or business. Readers can also choose something more specific, such as the San Jose Sharks. The news section will automatically show customized summaries, as long as the user is logged in. Users also can ask Google to exclude reports from newspapers, broadcasters and blogs that they don't like, although the company says some coverage from the ostracized media may still slip in. Another tool will make it easier to share stories on Facebook and Twitter's messaging service, as well as on Google's own social forum, Buzz.
