Subject: Re: "News element wizard" from "Google News AJAX Search API" sends to default Google.com page.
Actually, the only part of the Web Elements documentation that I'm still seeing on the Google site is the FAQ. The "home" page and all others are redirecting to google.com. I would guess, therefore, that the one surviving page is a remnant which was simply missed in the process.
Re: contacting Google, there are several Googlers who regularly monitor this group. Perhaps they will chime in on the fate of the Web Elements.
Re: RSS news, you might find the Feeds API useful for this. However, given the dev team's focus on their new APIs, running on their new infrastructure, I would not be surprised to find the Feeds API deprecated at some point in the not-so-distant future. So I don't know that I would even rely on that.
The good news is that you could always roll your own feed-fetching/caching/parsing service. That would probably be the way I would go at this point.
