Google adds real-time results Google has added real-time results to its search engine this week, allowing for up-to-the-second updates from social networks networks such as Facebook, MySpace and Twitter.
Microsoft's Bing search engine announced a similar partnership in October for real-time results.

"I would say that real time search is the natural evolution of universal search," says Marissa Mayer, Google's vice president of search products and user experience.

Mayer also added that Google was not selling ads alongside the real-time searches just yet, waiting instead until the consumer experience with the RT searches was "perfected."

Additionally, Google announced the launch of Google Goggles, a service that allows mobile phone users to take pictures of products and then receive pricing and other results about the product.
