I have just finished Google gadget that displays the most interesting news for programmers from four sources - Slashdot, Hacker News, Digg and Reddit. Top 5 news are displayed from each site, each in separate tab. If you want to get more access to the best technology news, you should really use it. You can install it to your iGoogle page or embed to your web site. If you want to view source code, it is here.
