MSN Newsbot - MSN features new syndication to counter Google News.

It seems that competition between Google and Microsoft is heating up. First it was mail, then came search engines and now a news aggregator (something that pulls news from various sites and puts them together on a single page).

The all new MSN Newsbot (beta) seems microsoft's latest attempt to compete against Google News - one of the internets top destination pages.

But it seems the creative microsoft has hit rock bottom - it seems MSNBot FAQ is almost a copy of that of Google Bot !! Now, is that coincidence or what. Little surprise that like Google news, MSN-news too has country-wise versions (MSNBot-India, , German, etc).
