Scott asks if Google News is Evil. No, Scott it's not evil--it's real-time. It's no more evil than real-time stock quotes for investors. Yes, there's a certain edge introduced with access to an ever-changing view of the world. But the information itself is not evil. Yes, the provider may have evil intentions, but I suspect that'd become apparent before long.

Oh I know but if you don't have a catchy headline, who'll read it? I mean "The 10 Habits of Highly Annoying Bloggers" could as easily have been "Things that Piss Me Off" and it wouldn't have gotten near the traffic (imho).
