  1. Custom news sources (or rss)

    Fleshing out the news ticker, we should be able to specify not just which topics we are interested in, but which sources we care to read from - or simply make it an rss reader and provide the sources ourselves. This would let us subscribe to just a certain subset of a given source's news articles, for example.

  3. Filter out News Sources in Feed

    I use the built in news feature because it's both pretty and convenient. However, although some may like it, I am not interested in viewing all news sources included in the service. I think many people would also appreciate the option to select (or deselect) various stations from the list to be shown.

  4. The news feed desperately needs to be customizable. We should be able to choose sources. The current news feed is basically useless.

    The "News" under feed settings needs to be a clickable link that can bring up a menu where users can select the sources they wish to see show up on the news feed. There should still be topical feeds, but without the ability to choose sources, the news feed is basically useless since each user still needs to go to their sources to find the news they are interested in. More people would use the feature if more people could use the feature for what they want and care about.

  6. BETTER NEWS OPTIONS

    Need a news feed that I can choose all news sources and interests to see in the widget panel. Something like Flipboard with custom news sources (Arstechnica!), hashtags and maybe other updates from the web (favorite sites, etc).

  10. Let us choose specific news interests, example, sports, I want to know news about American Football, but not about Soccer.

    Let the user choose specific news interests, for example, I want to see news about Sports, but not every sport, I see a lot of news about Soccer but I'm not interested in that sport.
    This could work adding subcategories in the news interests.

  13. Let us choose specific news sources for the news feed. The default sources are crap for the limited topics this let's you choose from.

    Show a list of popular sites to choose from, but then allow us to search for a specific site

  15. My own news sources

    It would be really nice if I could pick my own sources, link it to my my flipboard or rss feeds for example. Not only because it's nice but mainly because the cards showed to me now are kind of crappy..

  19. Two (2) or more "News Market" in the "News Feed"

    Please allow the ability to select more than only one "News Market" (Language) in the "News Feed" settings.
    For instance, Canada is a "Bilingual" country but one cannot select more than one "Market" (Language) in the "News Feed" settings. Your only choice is to either select "System" or one only other Language making it impossible to get news in both official Language...
