Sumanasa Rocks

21 November 2007 3 Comments

Hi Guys,

I think I finally found a news site of my liking. Sumanasa is a very good site of my liking.. I have found this site super awesome. πŸ™‚

Some points worth noting:

1) Site splits the news by source, which is not found in Google News. [+ve]
2) We get editorials in sumanasa [+ve]
3) Doesnt allow me to remove sources which I dont care about [-ve]
4) Doesnt give the latest or the updated news in Bold [-ve],
They have a section called latest news, but doesnt help much.

Had there been 3 and 4, I think I got what I want with respect to news.

5) I also gives a very pleasing google readery view, which I love. [+ve]
6) The RSS Feed when fetched by reader doesnt seem to be up to date.

Google news is also good ( πŸ™‚ Read Loyalty to team and company), but one thing that puts me off is that when I open google news, it always shows me US edition news because I would have logged into gmail in another tab. Its damn frustrating to go and select India everytime you go to google news. So I prefer to do the better thing.. Dont read news πŸ™‚

Times of India at home is more inviting..

You will find these in my blog: Coffee, Fun, Carnatic Music, Mridangam, Google, Random thoughts, Business ideas, Start ups, Videos, Blogposts, Cricket, India, Philosophy, Real life Experience.. The list goes on…..

    BTW, I checked sumanasa. Not very great. Too much news on a single page.

    The best way to go about is to tailor selected news feeds available in hindu, hindubusinessline and bbc using Yahoo! Pipes (pipes.yahoo.com). Then you can read it in your favorite Google Reader

    Yes I know how to get to indian edition. But what I am telling is that it is frustrating to do that everytime. You should get what you want when u go to news.google.com
