> Google News Timeline: A Glorious, Intriguing Time Sink
> Edward N. Albro
> Got a deadline anytime in the next 24 hours? Then don't, for your
> own good, check out Google News Timeline. This new Google Labs
> feature, which organizes news stories and other information by date,
> looks to be the biggest, funnest time waster since we all spent
> hours exploring the globe with Google Earth.
> News Timeline is mostly a new way to look at the same material that
> you can find through Google News Search. The Google engineer who
> built it, Andy Hertzfeld, says he was inspired by Google Maps, but
> instead of letting people navigate through space, he wanted to let
> them navigate through time. So if you want to see all the news
> reported about HP in April of 2007, for instance, that's easy to do:
> you type HP into the search field and set the date for April 2007.
> When you get is a grid that shows stories about HP arranged in
> columns, one column for each week of the month.
> But that's kid's stuff. In addition to searching the Google News
> database, you can search through content from specific blogs,
> magazines and newspapers. You can look only for news photos or
> videos. Or you can search for sports scores or information on movies
> and books. Want a blow-by-blow account of the year 1424? You can get
> it through Google's connection to Wikipedia.
