Managing news

Recently I have come across this useful website for keeping up to date with news stories.
www.newsmap.jp
newsmap pulls data from several news websites and uses the power of google to sort the news.
In one glance, you can get an idea of whats in the news currently. Clicking on the news box takes you to the source of that story.
This saves the hassle of going to different sites (bbc, timesofindia, expressindia, ndtv etc.)
One can choose to customise the type of news you wish to see (World, health, sports, technology etc.) and also for a particular nation.
I have noticed that the search feature is very useful too. Eg. searching 'infosys' retrieves all recent news related to infosys.
