Google Desktop Google has done it again. First it was the original Google web search engine. Then the Google Toolbar, the first good integration of a search engine into a browser. Then Google News, using the Google search technology to build a newspaper drawn from thousands of news sources around the world. Then Froogle, another use of the Google search engine to search for product prices. And now, Google Desktop, an application of Google technology but this time to the information on your personal computer -- integrated into the Google web search so that you can search one place for material either on your PC or on the World Wide Web. Very impressive.
