BBC News related stories

Rob Andrews noticed that BBC News now "adds links to similar stories on rival websites" to most of their news articles.

BBC says that the service "uses web search technology to identify content from other news websites that relates to a particular BBC story" and compares the technology to Google News. Sounds like basic keyword and category matching but, nevertheless, it's an interesting development.
