Great new daily email service launched 4 August 2003

Check this out - a great free service at Google's technology playground where:

You can choose your breaking news.

Google News Alerts are sent to you by email when news articles appear online that match the topics you specify.

Some handy uses of Google News Alerts include:

monitoring a developing news story
keeping current on a competitor or industry
getting the latest on a celebrity or event
keeping tabs on your favourite sports team.

AND, don't miss out on using Google's great new handy toolbar - you can get it for free from BLOGGER, in my links column, to the right of your screen. It has a button to create a blog post and automatically captures the URL of any web page - just what I needed - ALL of my links NOW work!

More Big News! New Google Operator

Also on 4 August 2003, Google introduced a new advanced search feature that enables users to search not only for a particular keyword, but also for its synonyms (word having the same, or very nearly the same, meaning with another). You can do this by placing a ~ character directly in front of the keyword in the search box. More on this can be found at Google Weblog.
