Have you looked at Google News recently? I had not in a while and was surprised by the improvements after using the system for a while.
One other feature that I really like is how trending topics are incorporated. If you click on "Technology" for example, under that heading a list of the current trending topics related to tech are displayed. This is a great use of their search data and very useful.
So check it out, it is another good data point when looking for the latest news in tech.
