Stuck in the past?

Stuck in the past? Ok, while this is hardly news it's annoying as hell. No matter what I search for, it doesn't pull any articles up after 1/1/2001. What's worse is they don't appear to have ANY contact emails for anyone other then a frustrating "feedback" form. Grrrr. There's got to be other comprehensive live news search sites....

And it's not as if I haven't looked. Occasionally Yahoo! News Search has some good ones and I use News Alert for the wires but sites like Northern Lights which has a great archive of magazine articles has a sucky live news search.

Try Moreover. You can even get your search results in XML or RSS , if you like.

Did.... Tres unimpressed. I think the problem is that no one's taken the time to set their engine up to pull a) correct posting dates and b) get their material from a huge variety of publications. Granted if I want Lexis/Nexis or Dow Jones searching capabilities I'd probably have to pay for it....but I'm surprised that there's nothing better out there. Someone wake up SourceXchange or Sourceforge ;)
