Science News that isn't

Google news has a science/tech section which I occasionally glance at to see if there is any interesting science news. Of the 20 some stories on their main page at any given time somewhere between 0 and 2 are usually science. The rest are Tech, including video game reviews, prospects for the newest iPhone app, and other useless hogwash.

The New York Times online Science section is better, but they lump in technology, health and the environment, including stories with no science news involved.

BBC science news is still better, focusing on science (although they always have a few non-science environment stories mixed in). They also tend to get less of the science wrong than the American press.

The source I am starting to like more is New Scientist.
