Google News: Customized News

The blogosphere is gaga over Google's new customized news. From where I sit, Google has now replicated the functionality of the 1998 My Netscape page - except without the RSS feeds that allow you to select your own sources. Good summary by Aaron Swartz. The other thing the blogosphere is gaga over this week is eBay's launching of Kijiji, which is essentially a city-based classifieds listing. It is essentially a clone of Craigslist, except it is offered outside the United States. eBay had better not start complaining about people using its ideas after this.
