2 New Search Tools From Google...

2 New Search Tools From Google...

The First is called

Similar Images

and it
allows you to
search for images using

pictures rather than words. Click the
"Similar images" link under an image
to find other images that look like it.


And the Second new service is called:

News Timeline.

This search engine provides refined time searches for news only (crude time-specific searches are already in Google's base search engine, but often return inaccurate results for when the page was published). The result is that you can specify a time period of a specific day, week, month, year, or decade, and get news results tagged with specific keywords from that time period.

This search in particular should be a godsend for tired college students looking to get their Sociology or History reports done. To bring the Apple theme full circle, the new search was actually designed by Andy Hertzfeld, a former member of the original Apple Macintosh design team, lured away by Google. He pointed out at a special news conference that the search not only encompasses web articles, but scanned books, print newspapers, and magazines.
