What I like about it so far? It is very user friendly, has many built in rss feeds already set up, it's easy to navigate and easy to pick and choose the categories of news you are interested in. It also ranks the stories based on what others have shown interest in, identifying the hotest and most buzzworthy news. It's social too, you can add your friends and get their news and you can share news of interest in various Newgie communities.
What I didn't like about it? Well, you know the first news category I set was Sports > Auto Racing > NASCAR. The most recent story it returned was dated Oct. 29th. Um, this is Nov. 3. That's REALLY not gonna work for me. Other feeds than what you see below seem to be there (specifically Yahoo! and Fox Sports NASCAR News), however, they just don't seem to be being picked up by the NASCAR category. Since gathering the news is the most important task of this little operation, this area needs work.
Overall, the online-based, free service has potential. The layout out could use some sprucing up, but not at the expense of it's easy navigation. If they can get their feeds up to speed, Newgie could be one stop news shopping.
