I'm sorting this one out.  Thanks!  We need to link to topsy and the article.

This now works.  Only a single entry for now though.  Will have to rethink the layout a bit to properly support multiple results.  In fact, that's how we started; but I vetoed it because I thought it looked bad.

Problem is we have no real way of categorizing what kind of news a person is looking for.  We are just leveraging social proof to hope they care about it.

All,

   I've been working on some News integration for DuckDuckGo's zero-click index.  I would like feedback on the current implementation.  It's still very alpha, but wanted to reach out and let you guys shape it!

To try it; go to news.duckduckgo.com and use the following to make sure it triggers.  I am currently working on making the trigger better.  I'm more concerned about the quality of the results and the presentation.  It can be slow.  That will be fixed prior to lauch.

a comment on the General Rambling DuckDuckGo for Android v1.9 6 years and 1 month ago
Tomorrow I'm going to be releasing a beta of DuckDuckGo for Android v1.9.

Currently changed:

1) Tor fixed for all phones
2) TLS and TLS verification is on by default.
3) !bangs now work in any place in the query
4) Fix headings on ICS and make them all grey
5) Copy query with long press from recent searches list
6) Disable history
7) Network optimizations
8) Disable voice buttons if there is no voice capability.

I did not add any permissions.  I know you guys like minimal permissions.

The widget is still giving me a bit of a headache since it's not working on my ICS Nexus S but is working on the 2.2 emulator.  If anyone has Android experience please let me know!

Also, if you want something small and I can manage it, I'll add it in.  Just make a comment here.
a reply to a comment on the General Rambling Why don't you integrate DDG with MapQuest? 6 years and 1 month ago
We are currently using OpenStreetMap data.  We're looking to augment it with other algorithmically curated data.  Open street map becomes only as good as the community caring about certain areas wants it to be.

Saw that link on HN today as well.  Thanks!

No it's not leaking local info.
