Google Real Time Search launches, ho-hum, or, bah, humbug

After being caught out by Google on Google Wave, I can't say I'm all that excited by Google Real Time Search, a new Web site for those who want only "real time" results. According to the Learn more about Realtime Search link below the search field box, "Realtime Search lets you see up-to-the-second social updates, news articles and blog posts about hot topics around the world."

Basically, what this "new" search feature from Google provides is results from the Updates link first, in other words, you're taken straight to the Updates results page instead of the Everything results page. From what I can tell at first glance, this is exactly the same stuff you'd see on a normal Google search of Everything and then clicking the Updates link to see what's there.

Ho-hum, or is it, bah, humbug.
