Google News is a highly unusual news service in that our results are compiled solely by computer algorithms, without human intervention. As a result, news sources are selected without regard to political viewpoint or ideology, enabling you to see how different organisations are reporting the same story. This variety of perspectives and approaches is unique among online news sites, and we consider it essential in helping you stay informed about the issues that matter most to you.
So there you are. They added a new feature today; individual recommended stories, using algorithms similar to their personalised search feature. The Official Google Blog has more details on the new feature and Google News here.
