Current TV - a Internet-TV joint venture

Current TV - a new way of integrating Internet and Television. Current is a new TV channel started by Al Gore. The basic funda of current is to show people the things which the people feel are happening and not decided by a news room. Current works in collaboration with Google. It uses a service called Google Current. Every half an hour Google current gives what people are searching over Google. Using this knowledge from Google, Current decides its content. Current is mainly targetted at capturing the interests of younger sections of the society. Cool feature of Current is it lets people create the content. It calls it Viewer Content Creation VC2. It lets the registered members of the site to review and rate the programs to be viewed on Current. This one seems to be a good idea - trying to capture the interest of the masses through internet and reach out to a large number of people through television.

Google Blogsearch

Google has recently released Blogsearch. This search is specifically reserved to search through blogs which provide feeds through RSS or atom. There were many search engines reserved for indexing and searching through the blog feeds, but Google Blogsearch beats them all with its cool and familiar Google search interface. Though the regular Google search also indexes blogs, Blogsearch is very handy being specific to Blogs. This also has some Advanced Search features specific to Blog search like Searching based on blog author, etc. One more cool feature of Google Blogsearch is that it lets you subscribe for the search results. A feed for feeds :-) Links: 1. Google Blogsearch - Google Interface 2. Google Blogsearch - Blogger Interface
