Google News Includes More Financial Information
Last month, Marissa Mayer gave an interview to Business Week. Among other things, she talked about Google News:
"When I look at Google News, where I know we have a user base that is very concerned with current events and likes to see multiple viewpoints, that feels like a really good place to integrate in something like Blog Search and/or Finance."
Half of the prediction came true today. Business section of Google News now includes some basic information about the market (Dow, Nasdaq, S&P 500 index, NYSE) and the most recent stocks viewed on Google Finance.
The stock section has the same autocomplete function integrated in the search box like as Google Finance and it's useful if you enter the first letters of the name of a company.
Marissa also said that Google will integrate videos into Google News.
