New Google Services

Still under Beta testing (and not officially launched), Google is about to launch two new services.

1. Google Print, which will be simliar to Amazon.com's "Search-Inside-the-Book" feature. This will allow you to perform a Google search on any book that has been indexed by Google (probably many thousands).

2. Google SMS, that will allow you to submit queries to Google via SMS and get your results back within a minute. This is currently only available in the US.

Google has some good brains stacked up in their office out in Silicon Valley and htey sure come up with neat ideas - the quesiton is how long can they sustain such a collection of brains - im sure google is making loads of money via its propreitary search engine - how long can the edge last - ;) just a question for all -

Google is the first company of its kind to make its search algorithm available on the Internet as a web service. Developers from Pakistan can then incorporate search facilities into their applications - without having to reinvent the wheel.

However, most of the IT publications in Pakistan seem oblivious of this rising trend in the developers' community. None have so far covered anything on this popular topic. I wonder why?

Web Services would probably replace desktop software as we know it. Its worth a explore.
