Google is capturing streaming video from TV stations, making screen grabs of the streams, combining this with closed caption text dialog, and the time/date for broadcast.
You can search for broadcasts by keywords in the dialog - completely different, leveraging their keyword prowess and search.
I look for something like an integration with a Tivo like product in the future - maybe :-)
Following the trend what are you talking about?
Video search, blah. I dont find video search feature usefull, and especially how google defined it. Lycos has this feature for a quite a long period of time now, 4-5 years definetely.
It's just ridiclious if you ask me. That there are articles about "google's about to release video search" and some lycos has it for 5 years now.
Dude, google and yahoo are starting to go on my nerves. I loved google back in 98-99 cuz they were a small unknown company, and had a great search engine. Now, they are not even so great or unique.
If you ask me about any of this, I would put a OVER-RATED sign all over it.
