Desktop Search

New resolution – more frequent blogging ; )
I thought it would be interesting to test Google’s objectivity by sending it this query on the hot phrase for 2005 “desktop search.” Suprisingly Google returned a pretty intereresting result. Here’s the top-five results.
#1 – Google Desktop Search
#2 – About Google Desktop Search
#3 – Copernic: Software to search, find, and manage information
#4 – MSN Toolbar Suite Beta with MSN Desktop Search
#5 – Slashdot | Yahoo Release Desktop Search Tool Beta
Can’t blame them for #1 and #2, they’re obligated to their shareholders. #3 was nice to see becase right now the Copernic solution is my favorite – although I haven’t tried the MSN or Yahoo! options yet. The MSN search tool is next on my list to try and frankly I don’t think I’ll ever get around to trying Yahoo’s implementation – after all, they didn’t even really make it onto Google’s short-list ; )
