Google has launched a new Deals page, almost two months after Ask.com unveiled their new Deals site. Google's Deals page features the 900 retailers included in Google Checkout. The Deals site ain't pretty either:
You can access the Google Deals site at www.google.com/checkout/deals.html
Meanwhile, Google is taking on Yahoo! in Times Square. You might remember Yahoo! is offering free Wifi in Times Square. Google wants people in Times Square to search via Voice by calling 888-376-4336. Answers to the queries appear on electronic billboards. This is part of a campaign to promote the new Motorola Droid, which uses Android.
The billboard campaign doesn't run all day. You can find it going on from 12:30-2pm and 6:30-8pm most days.
