Google updates Desktop, adds new products


— 3:54 AM on May 11, 2006

Google announced four new products following its yearly Press Day event yesterday. The new additions include Google Co-op, which allows users to label pages and create "subscribed links" to help make information more accessible, and Google Trends, which lets users see detailed search statistics for various keywords. The company is also introducing version 4.0 of its Google Desktop, adding multi-purpose "Google Gadgets" similar to MacOS X's Widgets and Windows Vista's Sidebar Gadgets. Google Gadgets include a media player, calendar, weather forecast, stock quotes, clock, and many other tools. Finally, Google announced Google Notebook, a "personal browser tool that lets you clip text, images, and links from the pages you're searching, save clippings to an online notebook, and then share notebooks with others." The company revealed little else about this product, but said that it should launch some time next week. Google Co-op, Google Trends, and Google Desktop 4 are all available today.
