Launched a few days ago in the US and now in the UK, Google has integrated real time search within their search engine results as this search for iPhone demonstrates (see screenshot on the right!). Real time search integrates posts from blogs, news sources, twitter and facebook posts to bring up to the second results. The interface is a bit clunky which is surprising for Google who pride themselves on simple and clean as their new homepage shows. For those of you who haven’t seen it the “new” Google homepage has a fade in effect for it’s menu items when you move your mouse over the screen.
In other Google news, yesterday’s Google doodle featured Popeye to celebrate his creator (E.C. Segar)’s birthday, 8th December 1894. Maybe next year we’ll get a Dimebag Darrell doodle?
