Google on your desktop

A wonderful, if slightly worrying, application offered by Google in beta mode.  Basically, it’s google, but instead of using the web as its index, it uses your ‘puter.  So, it trawls through and indexes all of your emails and all of the relevant files on your PC.  I think it stores the indexes server-side (which worries me slightly), but once it’s indexed your stuff, the functionality is very useful.  You can search for stuff that you did a long time ago, and it’ll find it instantly, rather than you having to remember where you put it, or who you mailed it to.

I recommend it…

    dan – the index is held on your PC, not on their server
