Google's new "universal" search

Now when ever you serch you get news, videos, images, and maps to the search results you used to get. Google is trying to merge its specialized search pages—like Google News into one giant search function. If you're looking for news stories or images, you'll do better going to Google News and Google Images, respectively but now you can just visit Google.

Personally,i would visit Google News to find a story, I can't see why I'd ever go over to the universal page to hunt up a news story. But I suspect Google isn't aiming at a relatively sophisticated searcher such as me. Rather, it's looking to appeal to more casual users.
