Yahoo Search Pad (Beta) Research Tool

Yahoo Search Pad (Beta) Research Tool [news.cnet.com]
Yahoo will launch a new tool on Tuesday to help people organize research they do on the Yahoo search engine. The Yahoo Search Pad will automatically save search results when it notices the user is doing research, which should make it easier for people to come back to a project on subsequent days to do more work. Other Web notebook projects have notably failed, or at least failed to become important. Tools like Google Notebook and JetEye are (or were) all very strong tools for saving Web search results, but they require intent on the part of the user. They save nothing without the user asking for it to be saved. Search Pad, in contrast, watches what the user does (as long as they're doing it on Yahoo), and, according to Yahoo VP of Consumer Experience Larry Cornett, "uses deep science to recognize when someone is doing research."

They should get the first 2 words of the title the proper way first, extremely important! Other wise every user will still need the college degree and a good credit score to use the engine to get anywhere. I am not talking about Developers that write the code to aggregate the info, but the "What the heck happened to IDEA?" 2 weeks later. anyway...
