I use a Yahoo mail account for all of the business-type mail I need to check up on, and when you first log in, it shows you some news articles that are popular today; against my better judgment, I clicked on this one and only made it a couple of paragraphs in. What I noticed, though, is a feature in the left-hand column that allows you to select checkboxes next to phrases you would like to receive "News Alerts" on. Among other things, I apparently have the option to make Yahoo News tell me anytime there are news stories about ... log cabin-style houses. I managed to resist temptation. This time.
