Our pick of the morning reading

By Cbr Rolling Blog

1. Google Instant means search results before you finish typing (The Guardian)
‘Streaming results’ will save two to five seconds on every 25-second query, says search executive Marissa Mayer – but SEO people may be less happy, says Charles Arthur.

2. At Oracle, Hurd lands in rare situation (Wall Street Journal)
Mark Hurd, Oracle Corp.’s new co-president, now has something he hasn’t had in many years: a boss. His relationship with CEO Larry Ellison will be crucial, says Ben Worthen and Joann S. Lublin.

3. Eat your heart out, Frankfurt, Dublin and Gdansk – London still tech investment centre for Europe (CBR Rolling Blog)

4. Like it or not, Twitter has become a news platform (GigaOm)
