The Future of MetaSearch

There is a new application out which, to me at least, indicates where the future of search is going.

It is a desktop application called Blinkx and it is pretty amazing.

What caught my eye about this product was that it is probably one of the first real desktop based, local and web integrated search tools. In other words, when you perform a search through the Blinkx application, it not only searches through various web sources, it also searches local word docs, pdf's, powerpoint's, excel sheets, and even emails. What else is cool about this application is that it is supposed to learn while you search and refine results. I must say that I have only been using it for a couple of days and already the results are getting better.

The only drawback I have found is that their web index is relatively small - 40 million pages - but I am certain it will grow now
