Google's Desktop Offensive

Google's Desktop Offensive: "On May 10 Google announced several new services aimed at moving it further into the heart of Microsoft territory: the computer desktop. For starters, it unveiled a new version of Google Desktop, which in addition to letting users search their own hard drives will now give them 'Gadgets' -- small applications that sit on the desktop to provide everything from news and weather to entertaining animations.
Also in the lineup: Google Notebook, a Web-based note-taking program; Google Co-Op, an enhancement to the search engine that lets users annotate search results; and Google Trends, which lets users chart the frequency of specific searches over time. Google touted the new wares at a series of presentations for the media at its headquarters in Mountain View, Calif."
