Microsoft Tests Newsbot Beta
from the Imitation-or-Google-Flattery dept
Microsoft is testing a news search service to compete with Google’s News called Newsbot with additional features like personalization for users of MS Passport. Currently, it’s only for the United Kingdom, France, Italy and Spain. It looks pretty much like Google’s News, and we can anticipate anti-MS groups fearing the “personalization features” and the rest of us just wondering how Newsbot is any better than Google News.
