Google "During its Keynote today, Google announced new features coming to its flagship search function - you know, that thing we all started using Google for. VP Amit Singhal spent some time discussing what Google's search functionality will eventually morph into. Google's strategy is summarized by three words: answer, converse, and anticipate. Singhal explained that many of the pieces of these upcoming changes can already be seen in products that Google has recently introduced - namely, Google Knowledge Graph and Google Now, with perhaps a splash of Google Glass, too." I hold on to my hat every time Google changes Search. It's such a vital product in my daily life.

An interesting experiment is to sit down with your laptop and a friend with their laptop and without signing into a Google account both do searches using identical search terms. Almost certainly the results will be different and will be tailored to suit what Google thinks you are interested in based on each of your previous search activities. That's both (usually) very useful and (always) a bit unnerving.
