Google News gets its knickers in a twist

  • Google News is outsourcing to the Ministry of Silly Walks.

    Checking the sci/tech section of the site this morning, we were surprised to discover that the top US science story was something about the Pakistani cricket team and ball-tampering.

    Shortly afterwards, we were informed that there's currently a rise in 'mass religion-related incidents' in China.

    And as the East Coast was just waking up, the twelfth most important US tech story was apparently a press release entitled Incontinence Products in Japan.

    Are they taking the piss?
