    Google (GOOG) introduces a new service to make its search results timelier, using a real-time approach that better combs sites such as Twitter and Facebook. Google is behind Bing (MSFT) and Yahoo (YHOO) in social searching, and the challenge will be in organizing the real-time information so it's more relevant to users.

    Yahoo (YHOO +0.1%) may buy a “considerable" stake in Hulu if the video website pursues an IPO, a Stifel Nicolaus research note says. While an investment in Hulu wouldn't solve all of Yahoo's long-term problems, Stifel says it could reinforce Yahoo's position as a core entertainment destination.

    What prevented Yahoo (YHOO) from becoming a great company: not enough hackers.

    China Mobile (CHL +1.9%) and Xinhua News Agency agree to build a new internet search engine company. The two declined to provide additional details, but have set an ambitious task, as the Chinese search market is already dominated by Baidu (BIDU -2%) with a 70% share and Google (GOOG) with 24.2% of the market.

    Unsurprisingly, Microsoft (MSFT) reportedly is taking steps to try to block the partnership between Yahoo Japan (part owned by Yahoo (YHOO)) and Google (GOOG), which Microsoft estimates will own 98% of the Japanese search market. But Japan's regulators are taking a softer line, saying advertiser competition will remain strong.

    Yahoo Japan, the country's largest internet search site, is teaming up to use Google's (GOOG) search engine technology and advertising platform, snubbing Yahoo's partnership with Microsoft (MSFT). Yahoo Japan is 35% owned by Yahoo (YHOO), and Japanese reseller Softbank (SFBTF.PK) owns a 40% stake.

    Market recap: Stocks tumbled after Bernanke poured cold water on hopes for quick Fed action to boost the economy despite an "unusually uncertain" outlook. Financials rallied on a strong report from Morgan Stanley (MS +6%), while Yahoo's (YHOO -8.5%) weak quarter dragged techs lower. NYSE decliners led advancers by about five to two. Treasurys and the dollar rose.

    James Altucher loves his Apple (AAPL -2.1%) gadgets, but headline risk from the iPhone4 antenna problem prompts him to endorse three other tech stocks: 02Micro (OIIM +7.8%), which does the LED lighting for iPads and currently trades for only two times cash; KLA-Tencor (KLAC +4.1%), which will benefit from Intel's (INTC) growth; and Yahoo (YHOO +3.1%), which will win big from its search outsourcing deal with Microsoft (MSFT).

    Google (GOOG +2.3%) fought to stay in China because of the country's obvious growth potential, and firms that got out of the country earlier, such as eBay (EBAY) and Yahoo (YHOO), haven't been able to regain a foothold. But many observers say Google wimped out, providing China with a crippled search engine that effectively censors not just objectionable web pages but just about everything.

    Yahoo (YHOO +2.1%) forms an exclusive partnership with Zillow for its real estate portal, linking the country's No. 2 and No. 3 real estate websites and presenting a challenge to top dog (MOVE). The two sites will continue to look different, but run the same ad network.

    News Corp. (NWS) is in talks with Google (GOOG), Microsoft (MSFT) and Yahoo (YHOO) about replacing MySpace's search-advertising partnership with Google, sources say. MySpace has fallen far short of Web traffic and other milestones laid out in the Google contract, which expires at the end of August.

    The Supreme Court rejects a bid to expand patent protections to business methods, in a case brought by inventors looking to patent a method for hedging weather-based risk in commodities trading. Google (GOOG) and a group of internet retailers argued that business-method patents harm innovation, while Yahoo (YHOO) and IBM (IBM) have argued the ruling leaves innovaters exposed.
