Great Google-y Moogly:
Yesterday, Google released Google Desktop Search 2 and knocked it back into beta. Grabbing all the attention during the release was the brand new Sidebar. SEW gave an overview of the product. Some liked it, some hated it, some saw possibilities.
Speaking of possibilities, the New York Times has this interesting quote.
Google executives say they plan to unveil on Wednesday a “communications tool” that is potentially a clear step beyond the company’s search-related business focus.
Rumor has it that the communications tool will be an IM competitor and maybe a Skype competitor as well. CNN today referenced an LA Times article discussing just that.
I’m curious to know where Hello will fit in. I suppose we’ll all find out tomorrow.
