Free news and finance -- at the touch of a button

The local arm of Internet navigational organisation Yahoo! has launched a new version of its To-Go service, expanding it to include search, news and finance information.

The To-Go service allows Web publishers to add a Yahoo! button to their pages and thereby provide customer access to the Yahoo! site and specialised search engines -- all for free.

The new tools allow Web designers to customise the area of interest on the site. News Search allows for a keyword to be entered into the search form and Yahoo! then provides the pre-programmed button which can be copied and pasted into any HTML page. Then when the button is selected on the Web page, a search is automatically started to locate the latest news surrounding the keyword.

The Finance Search operates in a similar way, with a Web designer entering an Australian Stock Exchange stock ticker. Stock prices, company profile and financial news articles can be retrieved by clicking on the button.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

Brother PocketJet PJ-773 A4 Portable Thermal Printer

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
