Hakia update

A previous post focussed on the Hakia search engine that prides itself on its credibility. The people who have joined Hakia as a member receive an occasional email update. From their latest update, Hakia says:

Imagine a digital newspaper of your own, a Web page where you can park searches or even better your questions. A system monitors new information from news sources with semantic precision everyday just for you. When you open your digital newspaper page, all relevant news articles are then displayed in an alignment of your choice. WE HAVE ALREADY BUILT THIS SERVICE FOR YOU! Go to my.hakia.com and customize your own digital newspaper.

Customising your own page is quick and easy. News headlines for Australia are available (but weather is not). Users are able to move customised selections around the page (even after selecting Australian headlines, US and Europe headlines were featured at the top of the page, however, bringing Australian headlines up to the top of the page means that it sticks there, saving the user having to scroll through the page.

Hakia are keen to hear from users about ideas to make Hakia and the web even better. Drop them a line at myidea@hakia.com with your thoughts.
