Welcome to PubSub. I'm really liking this. Pubsub matches your requests/interests against new information as it appears in real time. It tracks over 8 million sources on your behalf. You can create very simple searches - just a word or two in fact (though oddly it defaults to OR rather than AND), but it does have excellent Boolean capability, including nested logic. You can also limit searches to various fields, such as your keywords in the title. You can also limit to press releases, SEC/EDGAR filings, newsgroup posts and, strangely enough, airport delays and earthquakes.
Results can be returned to you in a variety of ways; if you wish, you can just go back to the site, which remembers who you are, or you can download a sidebar for IE or Firefox for example.
It's completely free and you don't even have to register to use it.
