Microsoft’s Live Search Blog recently announced that they have started a news alert service which will enable users to get the latest news delivered directly to their email. Currently the delivery options can set only as daily, twice daily or weekly.
This service is indeed very similar to Google Alerts, which allows you to get instant update whenever any news stories that are related to your your search term hits the net. But the likely downside of this new feature of Live Search is they only let you choose top headlines or subject-specific news headlines.
To activate Live Search news alert, simply visit news.live.com and sign in with your Live ID, click on the News alerts link, and then click on “Create Alert.”
The thing I hate most about Microsoft is, most of their products are very “US” centric. This News Alert service is also for US users only.
