Google ( GOOG) is trending after announcing a redesign of its image search feature. The company now claims that Google image searches will be faster, more reliable and more visually appealing. Images will now be featured in a panel that allows the user to flip through them quickly using their keyboards. In addition, information about each image will be shown more prominently alongside it. The title of the page where the image is found, the domain name of its location and its size will be included. Users can also click on the domain name for each image or click a new button that will take them to the page where the image is found. The ultimate result of the redesign cuts down on the amount of clicks needed in an image search and is expected to be quicker for the user. Users will see the redesign "in the next few days," according to Google.
Sony ( SNE) is another popular search. The company has just been fined 250,000 pounds ($396,000) by the UK's Information Commissioner's Office in relation to the PlayStation Network being hacked in April 2011.
