Google News Redesign Experiment

Ionut of the Google Operating System blog has screenshots of a Google News design experiment, apparently showing to a portion of users (I can’t see it, can you?). On the frontpage (of at least the science/ tech section), there are now a couple of more visual modules, like a “featured photo” section. Ionut argues this marks the first time “when Google News promotes stories just because it has the permission to show associated images” (Google licenses content from some news agencies, and preferring partners over non-partners may be a bit portal style, for better or worse).
