Find out what's in stock nearby.
Ever go to pick up something at a store and they're out. No problem, just go to another store or another location of the same chain. But they don't have it either. Annoying.
Google wants to help you save time (and frustration) by showing you what's in stock where.
While you're out, simply go to google.com on your mobile phone. Click the "More" tab and select "Shopping." Do your search thang.
A list of results will come up - look for a blue dot with either "In stocky nearby" or "Limited availability." Click the link and find out which store has what you're looking for.
Participating retailers include Searcs, Best Buy, Williams Sonoma, and Pottery Barn among others.
