Google and Portals May 19, 2005

Looks like I’m about to lose my bet. Check out “Personalize your homepage.”

Google’s stock module seems not to recognize some mainstream ticker symbols, for some reason. And when you click on a company, although you get a nice chart on top of search results, it’s like searching for a quote – nowhere near as useful as what you’d get from MyYahoo. The top news stories are straight from the suppliers’ (NY Times, BBC, Slashdot, Wired News, Google News) main RSS feeds, which isn’t very creative, but that’s not Google’s fault. The drag and drop layout is nice.

But come on, Quote of the Day and Word of the Day but no horoscope? Guys, get on it!
