    Is there any widget or program that will constantly show updated news or stories on my home screen?

    I realize there are news apps (AP NEws, USA Today, etc.) which I have, but I was looking for just a one or two-line homescreen display that I could click if I wanted to.


    Thanks all...

    Nothing good really. Foxnews has one, but I don't like the way it looks. I believe I read somewhere that Android 2.1 has a decent google news widget. Can someone verify?

    2.1 does have a new 1X4 news widget (uses one row, all 4 columns)

    Very cool!! Thanks man, that's exactly what I was looking for.

    I like the fact that it connects to different news sites instead of one place.

    Is this the new widget that will be implemented in 2.1?


    Thanks again...
