Google planning desktop software search tool
From Forbes.com comes the news that Google, the Internet search company, is planning to release a file and text software search tool for finding information stored on a computer.
Google's software, expected to be introduced soon, will allow the company to offer tools to search the desktop, a domain now controlled by Microsoft Corp.
Upgraded technology for searching stored information on a personal computer will be part of Microsoft's upcoming version of its Windows operating system called Longhorn.
A Google representative was not immediately available to comment to Reuters.
Microsoft's Search function is definitely due for an overhaul
