Is Newser this weeks Daylife?

Newser.com is a new news site, with the tag line: "Faster, Smarter News." Seems like it does some kind of automatic classification of news by one of 9 major topics and organizes it automatically and attractively. It may or may not be trying to personalize what it displays for me.

To my eye it is similar to Daylife.com. Remember Daylife? It flashed pretty good a few months ago, but haven't really heard much more about it. Again I am not sure whether it does any personalization or how that works.

As someone who follows these kinds of products pretty closely, I don't immediately see the key differences. Do you?
