Google Launches Ride Finder and Real Time Stock Quotes
"With Google Ride Finder, you can tell us where you want to find a ride and we'll show you the actual positions of participating vehicles in that area, along with a phone number you can use to contact the fleet operator (e.g., Chicago)." [via GoogleBlog] The service currently includes 11 metropolitan areas.
Also from the Google Blog, news about the availability of stock quotes: "...all you have to do is type in a ticker symbol like INDU or SUNW and the search results will include the latest exchange and real-time ECN quote, intraday chart, volume and market cap."
