And just in case you don't want to be tracked, the first time you use the service there will be a pop-up page that allows you to prevent your phone from passing along your location. If you agree to be tracked, a new section called "News near you" will be added to the bottom of your home page when you head over to news.google.com from your phone. If being tracked by your phone freaks you out, you can turn off the service anytime.
Google's "News near you" uses your location to send you news relevant to whare you are. The news at left is for Topeka, Kansas
