I’ve been on two discussion boards this week where some have dismissed problems with Google products as excusable because they are in beta. Hey, you lose the right to claim
product failings as a beta issue after a certain period of time. I can’t say exactly when that is — but how about two or three months, rather than two or three years?
For the record, Google News is better described not as "over two years old" but "nearly three," as it has a birthday coming in March.
