Google has started showing ads on the licensed news agencies articles they're hosting (hosting on unstable links, at that). Example:

Wow, the given link is so ugly! I only see those blue ads, and I don't see any relation between Obama and cellulite. Beurk.

Ads should be very light grey bordered, or very light blue in my opinion.

Hi, may be someone clear my doubt. I have a website in which some services are free except one commercial page. In this commercial page, I want to display google news using its RSS/Atom Feed. I am just going to display the google news as it is and NOT going to modify it.

   Is it OK if I do that ? "The terms of use" in google news page is NOT very clear.
