Google News Tip - If you search for a topic in Google News, you can subscribe to the RSS/ATOM feed for that topic in Google Reader, iGoogle, or other RSS aggregator. 

You can get a feed for any Google News section or for any search you do on Google News. To create a feed for a section on your page, click on the section you're interested in, then click on the "RSS" or "Atom" link on the left side of the page. For instance, if you click on the "RSS" link while you're on the Business page, you'll get an RSS feed for business news. To get a feed for a specific search query, first perform the search on Google News, then use the "Atom" or "RSS" link on the left side of your search results page to generate the feed. Learn more about feeds.
