In The News 1.2

I added an autocompleting search widget to In The News today, to make it easier to get to specific names without having to manually hunt around through the smaller news item slivers. It was necessary to offset the news left-to-right sorting of the news items. In version 1.0, they were sorted alphabetically. Easy to find what you're looking for, but I felt it was a waste of a potentially meaningful source of information. Now, the items are sorted by first appearance on Google News: the oldest items are at the left, and the newest items are on the right. This gives the horizontal display a "sedimentary" behavior, if you imagine gravity pulling to the left. I hope that the new search widget will make it easier to find specific items. Darren rightly points out that I will now need to add up/down arrow functionality.
