Google - My Search History

Today Google unveils a new tools from its Google Labs : My Search History.

This new service stores your searches online with different statistics and allows you to encounter all the results you've found relevant for your search. You won't forget any page you see.

For using this service, you need a google account (Gmail, Froogle, Google Groups...) and that's all. The next time you enter, you will find at the top the "My Search History" link.

Apparently the service will also adapt itself to provide you the links in the manner you think they are relevant. It's some kind of search personnalization.

I'm really waiting for a big integration of all the google services in the GBrowser...

Stay connected.

Gmail Web Clips - RSS in your Gmail

Today, Even Williams unveils a new Gmail Feature called Web Clips.

We can hope that in a moment we can read our favorite feed within our Gmail account. Google seems to be a little late concerning RSS management. But this addition is pretty smart because they alternate between RSS feeds content and Adwords/Adsense content.

I think that the upcoming Gbrowser will be a killer app with everything we needs to manage RSS feeds and more.

Google Local Services and Maps

A few days ago, google unveiled an upgrade in its maps service.

Google Map now includes satellite view. I personally enjoy that the satellite view covers also Tijuana. The photos are about 2 years old but it's really helpfull to find anything.

Today Google unveiled a new feature for mobile phone. Google Mobile local allows you to locate a local business within your area and also the directions to reach them. Surely you can locate a map with the 10 local business results to help you find your needs. You can also find directions on the SMS Google Service.

But all these features are only for the lucky fews from the united states. I think that local services will be developed for foreign country in a while. I know that in France google buy domains names for that type of services.

Wait and see...

Manage your news subscriptions

Have you heard about RSS feeds ?

It's for Really Simple Syndication. With this technology you can manage easily your favorite information sources (if they provide a RSS feed).

I have tested some RSS agregator and finally choose Bloglines.

I really appreciate the service and their notificator program that reminds you in your desktop when new things happen. The easy bookmarklet link is also a great thing to subscribe, in just a few seconds, when you encounter a page of interest that provides a feed.
