For those of you who have been waiting for the ability to subscribe to feeds from Google News, I'm happy to say you can now do just that. For instance, if you are a chess fiend, you could subscribe to all the chess related news with http://news.google.com/news?q=chess&output=rss. Alternatively, if checkers is more your style, then you could use http://news.google.com/news?q=checkers&output=atom as the feed. Both RSS 2.0 and Atom 0.3 are supported, so you shouldn't have any trouble consuming these feeds.

Topic feeds (like entertainment, sports, or technology) are also available. Read more about it and let us know what you think.
