This is a beautiful use of technology. I would really like to see YouTube have local news based on your location.
Even better If G+ had "nearby" on the Desktop and phone then you could see local activity and news.
I've said it so many times before but I'll say it again: Google you have my location based on my IP on my PC. You have it because my latitude says my home is here and my phone is on that IP too... Use that info to give me news via G+ and/or YouTube... I don't get cable, I don't watch TV. The internet is my news feed.
