Package Tracking -- New Feature Google adds Fedex, UPS tracking, says article michael heraghty msg:95009 5:19 pm on Dec 13, 2003 (gmt 0) An article published yesterday claims that Google has:
quietly rolled out a new Web search feature that lets users track FedEx and UPS packages
Is this a new feature? It certainly exists, and is mentioned in the "Search by Number" section of the Google Web Search Features page:

Ya, there is a bunch of new ones on there to most people. Hawkgirl msg:95011 12:16 am on Dec 15, 2003 (gmt 0)
That travel conditions search is kind of neat - it'll come in handy over the holidays in the U.S.
I wonder if it will get used.

I hope they add delivery confirmation from USPS.com
Also, UPC is another one that is not mentioned. If you type in a UPC number, Google will display "Look up UPC number" at the very top.

Ask Jeeves has had weather conditions and flight delay info for a while as part of their invisible tabs thing. Seems like a lot of recent Google "innovations" were done by other sites first these days (deskbar, etc). The UPS thing is kewl tho.
