This is a great little site that I'm suprised is not more popular. It basically gathers all the news for all over the web and presents it in a simple graphical way using just boxes. Different subjects (world news, entertainment, science etc) are group by colour with items varying in size depending on how well read and popular they are - the bigger the box the bigger then news. You can also select your location so that the news is localised (to some degree).
It does occaionally go down for maintanance and can be a little slow to load but thats not suprising considering all that fishing it doin! Also the smallest items shown need to have the mouse moved over them to read and it includes items from paid news services which can be frustrating if you just want to read one item.
Overall though this is a cool little site - so much so that it has been my home page for some time now!
