  • Thank you. So you mean the major press get the first taste of the launches. Am I right? – Web2jeet 13 years ago
  • Well, there is no central place for news of new product or service launches but many use PRNewswire and other press release sites (there are many) so if you want to know what's going on, subscribing to those feeds is your best way... until someone builds something better. – John 13 years ago


If you know the specific industry you would like to monitor for product launches, I would suggest using google alerts.
Just configure the relevant search term, and you will receive any news updates on that directly to your email.

Also you can try to create a saved search on twitter, and follow that for any interesting data.
