There have been a couple of interesting bits of Google news in the past few days. These announcements could dramatically change how search is perceived on the Internet.

The first is the huge Google/AOL deal. For $1 billion Google earns a mere 5% stake in AOL. But there are other non-quantifiables which Google also gets as part of the deal.
