Google Search gets deeper and better with App Activities
Seth Sternberg, Director of Product Management for Google+, says that Google is now bringing app activity to Google search results. Starting with a few music and movieapps such as Fandango, Flixster, SoundCloud, Deezer, Slacker Radio, TuneIn, and Songza, Google plans to roll out the feature on desktop Search in the coming weeks.
Also, expect more apps to be added to the narrow list as well. Basically, the update now lets users view an app's popular user actitivies. "Searching for Fandango, for example, will show the top movies among Google users. And when you click on a movie, you’ll go directly to its page on Fandango," writes Sternberg.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
