Blinkx

Some people are saying that Blinkx is the next Google. I downloaded and installed the application this morening, and despite some usability issues, found that it does as promised: it searches both my personal files and the web in a single pass. No sign of the embedded application features, though, possibly because I'm using Firefox. Still, there's a lot of promise in this application, and Google will certainly be forced to respond. The implications for learning are understood by Blinkx programmers, too; take a look at the animated introduction to Blinkx on the home page to see a learning-specific example.
