I too am having the same issue. I have a Google News launcher icon and when I try to access Google News via the icon or the URL it says last updated 4/8. I cleared the BB browser's cache and have pulled the battery 2-3 times since Friday.

Mine hadn't been updated in ages, too, despite using google mobile app, the browser, taking the battery out, and clearing out my cookies. With all the problems I've had with the Pearl (I'm on my third one!), I thought for sure this was caused by the phone. It drove me crazy, because even when I searched for news, it would bring back results of only old news stories.
I wouldn't be surprised if this happened again. About two months ago, my "in the news" section wouldn't update for weeks, and then finally one day it changed on its own.
