For years I've got my daily news fix from the BBC news site. It was well arranged and would give instant access to the top world stories and, when I was feeling nostalgic for good ol' blighty, the UK. There were always a few interesting tidbits. And it was free, too.

Then, a few months back, some genius in marketing (I presume) decided that the page needed a New Look. Ever since, I just can't find any news on it. It's not just me, I have a colleague (Iranian) who has exactly the same feeling. Somehow, they just messed it up. I guess all the same news is still there, but it has lost its interest and salience.

Today I signed up for a subscription to The Times (the London one). Goodbye BBC news. I'm sorry to have lost a friend.
