As you might know, we spend a lot of time on the net, doing things that a few years ago, we could not even think of. Why go too far, even spending time on the net was one harrowing experience, what with the dial-up connection giving you "Amazing" surfing speeds of upto 40 kbps! on a 56 kbps modem. But, all that has changed and broadband has changed the way we spend our spare time, isn't it?
Now, all you need for some time-pass is, open your browser, go to google and type in anything that you want info on. And you can get hooked up for hours toghether, without having to worry about the net connection and the phone getting engaged.
Recently, I came across an interesting post by someone named Rajesh Jain. It was about google. Read on about it:
Business Week writes about the new search engines: "The result is likely to be a move away from a single ubiquitous search box, away from the reflexive hop to Google to find info on the Net. Instead, people may use several different search engines, each tailored to a specific task. One might specialize in blog postings, another in video clips, and a third in general information. The shift may look like the evolution of TV, from a world dominated by the Big Three networks to one in which hundreds of cable channels specialize in topics from cooking to history."
What do you think about this? I feel it might really be the case to some extent, but google would continue to rule the roost, purely because of the lack of awareness about alternative developments of such technologies. And it is anyways very easy and of course now a well developed habit to just go to google and try out new things, isn't it? What say?
