<<Under this latest iteration of advanced search, users will be automatically served the kind of news that interests them just by calling up Google’s page. The latest algorithms apply ever more sophisticated filtering – based on search words, user choices, purchases, a whole host of cues – to determine what the reader is looking for without knowing they’re looking for it.

And on this basis, Google believes it will be able to sell premium ads against premium content.

The first two news organizations to get this treatment, Schmidt said, will be the New York Times and the Washington Post.>>

Don't really understand what the system will look like. Just two newspapers getting special treatment should be interesting to watch, though (the NYT is also often covering Google – e.g. "Geniuses at Play, on the Job" nytimes.com/2009/02/26/technol ... – so it's also interesting from that perspective).
