Here's a neat idea that could save users time and aggravation accessing important information.
Kyodo News reports that beginning Tuesday, Yahoo Japan will place up-to-the minute earthquake information for quakes measursing 3 or above on the Japanese seismic intensity scale at the top of the Yahoo Japan home page.
In the event of an earthquake, Yahoo Japan will provide the information in the upper part of the top page of its portal site for about one minute. As for other pages, banner ads will temporarily turn into bulletin boards on the quake.
The article goes on to mention that this is the first of its kind service in Japan. The information will also be available via mobile phone.
Let's see if Google's Japanese site announces a similar type of service soon.
