Its not often we have Microsoft Research apps ending up on Windows Phone 7, Â but hopefully Project Emporia is a goodie.
Project Emporia makes finding relevant news a bit less taxing.Â It sifts through ever-evolving news streams to identify hot news stories, categorizes them into topic areas and ranks them, and then presents them to you in a friendly and easy-to-use UI.
You can influence how future stories are chosen for you, one vote at a time. Your votes will improve the relevance of your news story choices not just for you, but for every other user as well.
Project Emporia is one of the many Social projects from FUSE( Future Social Experience) Labs from Microsoft. They are the minds behind Docs.com, Kodu, Montage, Spindex ,etc.
