The 2012 Election season is really starting to heat up. If you are following the results and are more of a visual person, you're now in luck! Starting today, real-time election maps are available on the Elections section of Google News. Stay up-to-date as America casts its votes, state by state and county by county, in the race for the White House.

Very fun seeing people's first-time reactions to being able to tap & pay with Google Wallet (more info: http://www.google.com/wallet) on their Android phone.

This video field trip was in San Francisco & NY, at merchants like Duane Reade, Toyrs R Us, Peet's Coffee, Jamba Juice, Container Store, American Eagle Outfitters, and Macy's.

Google Wallet taps its way through SF & NY!

RIP: Dennis Ritchie. The C Programming Language will always be a classic.
I just heard that, after a long illness, Dennis Ritchie (dmr) died at home this weekend. I have no more information.

I trust there are people here who will appreciate the reach of his contributions and mourn his passing appropriately.

He was a quiet and mostly private man, but he was also my friend, colleague, and collaborator, and the world has lost a truly great mind.

Real-time search and improved hashtag support

Today we're rolling out two new features: 1) real-time search results; and 2) improved hashtag support. Together, we're trying to make it easier to follow and contribute to live events on Google+, including breaking news, sporting events, and many others.

Real-time search
Now when you search in Google+, you'll see a message about new posts the instant they're available. If you click on this message, or select "Most recent", then relevant posts will start appearing in real-time.

Improved hashtag support
People have long used hashtags to mark their posts with certain topics -- just ask our very own +Chris Messina, hashtag inventor. You don't have to use hashtags on Google+ (search works fine without them), but when you do, we'll automatically link to search results.

Check out the video to see both features in action, and let us know what you think in the comments! #googleplusupdate
