Note: The features of Google News plugin are now also met by my other plugin RSS Just Better. Please use the latter as Google News Just Better will be soon retired.
This wordpress plugin displays the list of the latest news by Google News given localization (country-language), search word(s) or topic, number of displayable news and whether you want publication date, time, an excerpt and reference to the author displayed or not.
The look & feel is customizable too.
It works as a widget or shortcode which means, you can show the chosen news in any widget-ready area or any post/page of your wordpress blog.
Starting from version 0.7 – for Us and Canada (eng) is also possible to display local news by selecting city, state/province or zipcode.

Wonder if these nerdy posts are related to my job, well, the answer is no. As a good friend once told me, "one never heals from programming!". It must be true in my case....
