12/23/2013, When you perform a search, say on Google, chances are what you are looking for is usually in the first page or two, and anything beyond that is simply not worth perusing. However what if sometimes what you are looking for are on pages that aren’t popular, simply because its owner does not know about SEO? Well that’s where experimental search engine, Million Short, comes in. The website, instead of […]
08/01/2013, If one were to remain where they are without any progression, it is unavoidable that your competitors would eventually catch up with you if they were to be behind in the first place, before overtaking you. Twitter knows this basic principle as well, which is why they have introduced updates to their service from time to time, and this has definitely helped them remain in business, so to speak, for […]
07/01/2013, Bing introduces a licensing filter in their image search function.
06/28/2013, Facebook has rolled out support for hashtags on its mobile site and will now offer related searches.
05/23/2013, Google, the maestros of search, has certainly done their bit to further enhance the Google search experience on your email, where it will soon be made possible for everyone living in the US to be able to perform an instant search on relevant emails, Google Drive files, and Calendar events among others each time you decide to perform a search in Gmail. Of course, this particular feature did not come […]
05/22/2013, Google rolled out an update for its Chrome web browser to include conversational search.
05/15/2013, A large chunk of Google’s Keynote was about search, and Google used this rather provocative title above to get our attention. Google as already said in the past that it will go towards “answers” and away from “search”, so this should not come as a shocker. The end-game is that you should be able to ask anything to Google, and it should provide an answer, whether it is from a […]
03/19/2013, GIFs are very popular on the internet. They have been around for over two decades and don’t seem to be going anywhere any time soon. They’re short and often hilarious animations used by an insane amount of people. Many actually have their own GIF collection that they’re very proud of. Google announced today that it has now added the Animated filter in image search. This will allow users to filter […]
03/19/2013, At GTC 2013, NVIDIA has demonstrated their version of Image Search, which was powered by their massively parallel processors. The goal of computer vision is to be able to recognize and understand what things are – not merely “seeing” them. This is a very intricate problem since computers are fast but fairly dumb (out of the box). They have no notion of “concepts”, unlike humans who can be shown one […]
03/14/2013, Google is not a company that is averse to making the tough decisions, and most recently, we were “treated” to news that Google Reader will be persona non grata when July 1st rolls around on your calendar. The thing is, we have yet another bit of news concerning Google (other than having Andy Rubin step down from his position as head of the Android division) as well, in addition to […]
01/15/2013, Earlier today, we laid out the basic functionality of the new Graph Search live from the Facebook HQ in Menlo Park. Beyond the new features, it is interesting to look at how this will help Facebook going forward, including monetization. The “business” question was raised during the Q&A sessions and it is completely legitimate, especially when you think about the potential infrastructure cost of running this resource-intensive, 100% personalized, feature. […]
10/02/2012, The Gmail inbox for many of us living in the cloud is the equivalent of a disorganized, overstuffed purse: you know what you’re looking for is in there, but sometimes it’s hard to search through all the used kleenex (spam) and receipts (newsletters.) But today Gmail received an update that will help users find specific attachments: Google now searches through text inside attachments. Previously, users could only search within text tiles. Now Gmail can […]
03/05/2012, Google is not a company that rests on its laurels, which is why it has decided to improve the local search experience across mobile devices, never mind if you are running on the Android or iOS platform. The next time you head over to Google.com on your mobile device to look up information concerning a place that you are headed off to, information concerning that place will be placed under […]
02/24/2012, It looks like Google has plans for changing the way we search using our mobile devices. The search engine giant was recently reported to have invented a new gesture for pulling off searches on future Android devices. Instead of users having to waste time selecting words the traditional way, it will allow them to simply use “continuous gestures” to get the job done. Well how does it work?
