  • What Does Real-Time Change?
    • News: Even more of a 24/7 activity in which news is reported all the time.
    • Search: Results will have an up-to-date info on what’s happening and what people are thinking
    • Local Info: What people think about retailers, services, brands, facilities, etc. will be instantly available to anyone right away.
    • Collaboration (e.g. Google Wave)
    • E-commerce – pricing information, inventory
