I used to use Google Finance for a quick look at the AAPL chart. I also often skimmed the headlines listed off to the right of the chart. Lately, those headlines are dominated by articles by ValueWalk, Potential Trader, and Insider Monkey, which all seem to be written by people for whom English is a second language, and who either do not understand what is going on, or are shills for Samsung/Google. I'm now permanently done with Google Finance, which was the last vestige of Google-anything on my systems.
I'll Google AAPL now and then for a streaming quote or maybe a simple timeframe line chart. That's about it. Their options chains data is complete crap compared to Yahoo! Finance, the charting functions are nothing like, say, freestockcharts.com (which against all my expectations seems to pass with flying colors *runs antivirus/anti-rootkit/malware triple combo on PC again just to be sure*)...
Thanks, Steve. The AAPL Tree is now on Apple News (iOS + web-readable and SOON on macOS) at apple.news/TuY-CX_-jRziryK895rDu6g - for a jumble of AAPL fundamentals, tech comment and a bit of AAPL chart nonsense | the ol' blog's at aapltree.wordpress.com | archived blog's on Medium @aapltree | Twitter @aapltree
I still use Google Finance but man, I agree, their news feeds have turned to absolute junk. I think they're making money off of those click-throughs through some sort of Adwords-type system for news, so all those crappy news sites are gaming the results in some way. News feeds should be thought of as value added content, not as a money-maker.
I would use freestockcharts, but having a proxy server at work makes it not load, and the fact that it uses Silverlight makes it impossible for me to use on my Linux machine at home. So I usually fire up Google Finance and StockCharts. All the news links on Google definitely look junky. I think Google Finance is one of those projects that doesn't see much development anymore if there even is any right now.
I still like Google Finance, even though I agree with Zeke that the individual company news shown is pretty low quality.
I like the overall news feed shown on the home page, I like how I can customize the tables of related companies, or even how prices update automatically. For overall driving news I like Yahoo! Finance, and WSJ. For charting I use ToS application, analysis I don't do myself I like my broker.
I don't use a single source of news or data for my work.
mercel: It's been a long strange trip - good to see you're still around (and in AAPL -my assumption).

sponge: Regarding the future of VR, I think it will be huge. I was a gamer when I was in college. But as an adult I lost interest. Last fall I flew up to visit my son at college and check out his new Vive set up. After playing with it for the weekend, I was
