Google’s launched Google Finance, its financial news and stock feature that will compete with Yahoo Finance and MSN Money. For now, it’s getting panned, and some critics go as far to suggest Google’s now in some kind of innovation lull.
We’ll see. Google Finance is only a beta release, which in essence means its on probation for a few months while Google engineers get wind of all the problems with it that they couldn’t find.
One new feature Google may want to consider? A way to automatically move someone’s portfolio from a competitive financial site into Google Finance. Right now, all that’s done by hand.
