*****QUICK NOTE*****

This program was written when Google News did not have any Atom feeds or RSS feeds. They've changed their layout of the front page a few times and they also support the xml feeds which makes this application redundant and useless to update. I'm leaving it around for people to check out though.

*** 1.0 What is a GoogleIt?
GoogleIt gets the first headline that is spat out by google 
news based on the topic you wanted.

*** 1.1 What are the applications for GoogleIt?
At the moment, you can just get the latest headline (ranging from 1 to 10 articles). More types of 
versions will be coming out soon.

*** 1.2 This was originally made for one of my sites and I figured I 
would share it and changed it around so more people could use it. Since
this project was more of a by chance effort than a planned one, features
are low, so added features in the future will look like:
i.  	Choose the number of headlines you want to view (Done)
ii.	Other News Search Engines will be made as well

*** 2.0 How to use the class?
Three lines of code:

//Include the class file
require (GoogleClass.php);

//First you specify that it is an object
$blah = new GoogleIt("Change Text Here");

//Then you tell it I want to print out whatever $blah->GoogleD finds. 
echo $blah->GoogleD();

/*Note: For the above, you can also put in a number ranging 1 to 10. Default is 10. This tells the class how many articles you want shown.

eg.
*/
echo $blah->GoogleD(5);     //list 5 stories

There are now two paramaters, which you can treat 
like a string, which will get 
the headlines from news.Google.com
The string can be of any length.

Google Tags were removed so that the topics can be shifted around so that 
it can suit any site.
