Race for New Search Engine Features 12/05
1. Google is now incorporating music information into normal google search results in the same way they incorporate movie and stock information. If Google recognizes the band, album or song, the results go to the top of search (see example Beatles). Weblink: Google Blog
2. AOL released in July 2005, a beta of a new suite of AOL Mobile Search Services for accessing AOL Search, Pinpoint Shopping and AOL Yellow Pages from mobile phones, smartphones and PDAs. On 1 December, it officially launched these features, available via a mobile browser at http://mobile.aolsearch.com.
With Mobile AOL Search, a user searches the Web using any word or phrase, just as on the desktop. Search results are automatically formatted to the user's mobile screen size and links are clickable.
