There's been a lot of talk in various weblogs about Google News recently. But it has been around for a while. Apparently people didn't notice it until Google made the links more prominent. Here's a hint, keep an eye on Google Labs to see what they're playing with.
Anyway, a lot of folk are speculating on if and how Google will make money from their news service. Over at Loosely Coupled, you get a sampling of it.
This shouldn't surprise anyone, but there has been a lot of talk at Yahoo about Google recently. In fact, some of us were looking at Google News a few months back--and starting to worry a bit.
Rest assured that Google will money off their news service. And it will get better. Just watch.
Remember when Microsoft and AOL were the only competition we talked about? Yeah. Those days are gone now.
