Google Announces Desktop

Google Decks Out the Desktop

Google Desktop 2 Offers One-Glance Desktop Access to Files, Email,
News, Photos, Weather, RSS Feeds, Stocks and Other Personalized Web

Google Inc. today announced Google Desktop 2 (beta), a free downloadable
application that changes the way users access information - whether
it's on the web or stored on their computers. By combining desktop
search with an intelligent sidebar that learns the user's habits and
interests, users receive all the information of interest to them in one
convenient location.

"Google Desktop is a new, easier way to get information - even
without searching," said Marissa Mayer, director of product
management for consumer products at Google. "You can think of it as a
personal web assistant that learns about your habits and interests to
identify and present web pages, news stories, and photos that it thinks
you will be interested in."

Built on Google's desktop search technology, it is now availalbe in beta.

Call or email us to see how this will fit into your environment.
