Google plays doctor by identifying your medical symptoms
CNET News.com

You can now ask Google to help diagnose what ails you.

Starting Monday, Google’s mobile site as well as its iOS and Android apps will introduce a feature that aims to track down information on medical symptoms. Instead of having to search for a condition, you can search for a certain symptom, such as “my stomach hurts.”

In response, Google provides an overview of potential conditions, possible treatments, directions on how to get more information online and which type of doctor may be able to help.
