Now that we have Google Talk, the whispering here in Silicon Valley is that Google hopes to launch Google Finance sometime in September. We haven’t confirmed this, but the word is that Google wants to replicate Yahoo Finance, but do it even better. It is in talks with data vendor Revere Data, a San Francisco company — which will provide the data and analytics on U.S. public companies for the service. Revere did not respond to multiple requests for comment yesterday. Google didn’t comment either….
This would come as no surprise, at least to me, and given its much more search-centric nature, would likely be far more interesting than the under-cooked and unexciting Google Talk.
