The Wall Street Journal is a great paper — hey, I write OpEds there now and then, so it must be good — but is it not getting Google press releases anymore? I ask because it has a story today talking about Google’s 1-800-GOOG-411 voice-based search service, and it sorta acts like it’s new news. But it isn’t, because the service was launched last week as the story concedes.
What gives? How is this breaking news, and why is it getting coverage like this days after launch? I feel like I’m missing something here, especially given that it’s Don Clark writing the piece and he’s usually fairly savvy at this sort of thing.
