Yahoo! News - Google's New Program Searches Hard Drives

    Yahoo! News - Google's New Program Searches Hard Drives: "Online search engine leader Google Inc. is setting its sights on the computer desktop with a new software program that promises to scour through the clutter of documents, e-mails, instant messages and other files stored on hard drives."

Oooo! Now you know that the 800 pound gorilla in Redmond must be bouncing off the walls of his cage. Must destroy silicon valley upstart (again).

I did a quick scan of the FAQ (see: http://desktop.google.com/) there seems to be an obvious oversite - the system only really integrates web and HD search if your using IE. I. E. who the f%^@ is using IE these days!?
