Google has taken another step towards becoming a portal by
"Google Finance" service.
The AJAXified Finance system by Google is something I personally
will use instead of good old Yahoo! finance. It's faster in terms of
changing the timeframe, a lot easier to read, and provides more
relavant news. The management section is pretty cool too. It shows
a short summary if you move your mouse over the name of the executives and
shows their photo, if available
Besides, it doesn't have any banner ads - for now.
The features I liked were the "blog posts" section, "related companies"
section and the fact that you only need to type in the name of the
company in the search box as opposed to its ticker symbol. Even
better, just type in
and it will automatically bring up
TWX (Time Warner, Inc.), AOL's parent company.
Wishing you all health, happiness, and success this year.
I know. I know I haven't been writing much lately; but this is
something I really couldn't miss.
