A New Aggregator on the Block

IndiaNewsBoxIt is really difficult to keep a track of the news on different websites, this is where news aggregators come in handy and I’ve been using Google News for quite some time now. Now there’s a new India-specific news aggregator which promises something different.

Powered by a two-member startup team (Tejaswini and Avinash) IndiaNewsBox intends to take on Google News and Rediff Newshound.

The site has a clean interface, but the layout needs to be worked upon a little and there’s already some variety in the topics covered. But they do need to go for a spell-check in some of the sections. And moreover if the site’s in beta, it should say that somewhere in the title or some other noticeable place.

Since the people behind the project acknowledge the fact that “the website is amateur in nature because it is the effort of first time developers,” I too would like to ask the design gurus on the net to lend them a helping hand. They are also inviting ideas for improvement, so do surely send yours across, even in absence of the beta tag.

PS: If you didn’t notice, the StatCounter counter in this blog crossed the landmark 100,000 figure. Now waiting for the first million.

In another activity, fixed the SMPS. Got a 400W Intex for Rs 400. Last time a crook had charged me Rs 700 for the job, therefore this time took matters in my own hand.
