WorldNews is a new and rather addictive global news delivery service which automatically pushes news headlines from the major wire services to your browser using Microsoft’s Silverlight tech. It’s not real time, there’s a 2 hour lag for some reason, but apart from that it’s a really interesting experiment in how to make news more accessible to the web crowd.

If they could integrate this with a Twitter news feed it could be a really valuable tool. For now it’s a little limited in the headlines that are featured, but it’s a promising start all right. One to watch.

 WorldNews: tells you what is happening in the world now Point out real-time news in the whole world. With 40 languages, you can learn news through any language. Keep the page, news will automatically update.
