I think a personalised news service is unneccessary. The majority of people will only want to read from one source, and will read the news headlines, local, and sports. A personalised google news bot will find the same news stories for its user as it does
for 190 million other people.
For the *small* percentage of people who read blogs, I guess it could be useful, but I'm not sure how different it would be from an rss feed app.
Oh, and when I heard "googlezon" the story lost all credibility!
This reeks of a first year media studies university project - complete with technological ignorance ("algorithm..."), star-gazing, and a complete lack of perspective for anything outside the author's extremely narrow focus.
