The battle on Search

August 10, 2006 at 9:03 pm 2 comments

As I posted recently (What’s after google?) abt the search diaspora, the war on ‘Search’ space has really hottened up since the biggies like MSN has gone All out to stop Google from eating up all the pies (read world wide web). And MSN is trying hard to prove that they too are all for ‘innovations’ as Google is fast emerging as the best alternative of the word. So, they have now come up with live.com that promises a deluge of things.

The search feature in ‘windows live’ looks interesting sply with the ‘scroll bar’ replacing the hassle of browsing thru page after page. However, it’s not entirely new since picassa started using the concept. The image search is slick however, the question is the ‘relevancy’ of the search results. Hmmm.. that’s where it seems lagging though. So, live.com may be winning the techie hearts with their rich user interface and aesthetics but far from capturing the ‘minds’.Google’s rapid releases also slowed down a bit since their some of the new kids fail to impress much (google lab etc). Google is being cautious now to not to create much hype and silently putting up the new toys. Once they become popular in the blogosphere, the releases are announced. Viral marketing? Huh.. seems so. I sort of like their new Googdesk (their new combobox approach in consolidating all the features), and Google suggest (not so new though).

Interestingly, for the fellow ndpians, if you try out with narendrapur in Google Suggest, the only number it suggests is ‘narendrapur 1993’. Cool – isn’t it?


google musical?

Also, check out the latest Google: The musical. 🙂 got a shock? dont be.. it has nothing to do with their tech innovation yet. it’s an outright dark comedy on Google’s frightening prowess that’s supposedly taking the world inch by inch!! don’t miss out this one…

    Very nice picture. In my view, Google has carved a nische in this business and nobody including microsoft can encroach.
