This is what comes after search - Quartz

Search is, in essence, a command-line interface for the web. Command-line interfaces are what came before the “graphical user interface” popularized by the Macintosh and Microsoft Windows, and they’re popular among the engineers who actually build the web. So it’s no surprise that the world’s first universal interface for the web was, after all, simply a box into which you type some text, and can even append operators like “” or “filetype:pdf.”

Qwiki's goal is to forever improve the way people experience information. Whether you’re planning a vacation on the web, evaluating restaurants on your phone, or helping with homework in front of the family AppleTV, Qwiki is working to deliver information in a format that's quintessentially human – via storytelling instead of search. We are the first to turn information into an experience. We believe that just because data is stored by machines doesn’t mean it should be presented as a machine-readable list. Let's try harder.

Hunch : Guide practical decision making

by 1 other
Look. Decision-making is difficult, and decisions have to be made constantly. What should I be for Halloween? Do I need a Porsche? Should I dump that loser? Is Phoenix a good place to retire? Whom should I vote for? What toe ring should I buy? It's a cruel world out there. Coin-flipping, I Ching consultation, closing your eyes and jumping, postponing the inevitable, Rock-Paper-Scissors, and asking your sister are all time-honored means of coming to a decision -- and yet we think there's room for one more: Hunch.


Google lance une application Voix-Recherche pour l’iPhone

La reconnaissance vocale reste le Graal de la Technologie et Google se lance à sa conquête. A partir d’aujourd’hui, les utilisateurs d’iPhone peuvent télécharger une application qui leur permet de poser une question et de recevoir en quelques secondes une réponse. L’application fonctionne en enregistrant votre voix puis la question remonte jusqu’aux serveurs de Google, les données sont analysées et les résultats sont renvoyés. Ces résultats ne sont pas encore parfaits mais l’application est en phase d’apprentissage et intègre les techniques de recherches progressivement; d’ici peu tout pourrait être quasi parfait.

compfight / a flickr™ search tool

by 7 others
Tags vs Text. Tags are keywords. If your "tags only" results are weak use less words or use "all text" to rummage through titles and descriptions. Tab Me Turn your popups on. Safari users can hold the "command" key when clicking thumbnails to invoke tabbing. Tabbing is tight. Blue Bars Bars indicate flickr™ is holding an original. Lingering your cursor over a bar will display the pixel dimensions. Creative Commons Checking this box restricts your search to the Creative Commons library. Use the "commercial" setting to hunt for commercially usable assets. Seek Original If you want nothing but blue bars change the Seek Original switch to "only." Turn the feature completely off when you intend to wander around flickr™. Safe Search Do not disable the Safe Search unless you're of legal age, in a legal country, promise not to tell your mom, etc. About Fashioned by Ryan & Bryan with glue sticks and rubber bands. They love advertising. Direct only good things to: [email protected] Legal Compfight is not affiliated with flickr™ but makes good use of the flickr™ API. Always double check your CC license(s) before use. Please respect the rights of all content creators. Godspeed. © 2008 Compfight

Blackle - Energy Saving Search

by 11 others (via)
Powered by Google, Blackle was created on the premise that a black, as opposed to a white, computer screen saves a significant amount of energy. Multiply that by the number of searches conducted a day and we're on to something. We know that not everyone is crazy about the look of a black screen, but part of this sustainable design gig is about examining our perceptions of beauty. Maybe if the bevel and embossed logotype were tweaked just a bit.

quicksilver: also makes julienne fries

At first glance, Quicksilver is a launcher. Command Window When opened, it will create a catalog of applications and some frequently used folders and documents. Activate it, and you can search for and open anything in its catalog instantly. The search is adaptive, so Quicksilver will recognize which items you are searching for based on previous experience. It also supports abbreviations, so you can type entire words, or just fragments of each. When not in use, Quicksilver vanishes, waiting for the next time you summon it.

alpha (beta)

by 12 others
Whilst aggregating feeds on one page is nothing new, we wanted to take a federated search concept one step further. With this beta, we have introduced personalisation elements that not only allow users to customise their view, but also to add their favourite search service (at least those who syndicate their search results via OpenSearch RSS).
