Google Unveils New Features

Google is developing new weapons in its fight with Microsoft's search engine, Bing, and other, more talked-about rivals. In an attempt to win back users from Bing and reclaim its place on the cutting edge of Web innovation, Google introduced several new advances Monday, including real-time search results that can appear without a need to refresh the page. Hoping to counteract Bing's initiative to include Twitter posts and Facebook content in its search results, Google plans on pulling information from the same services—and having the relevant tweets and status updates become visible automatically. The company also showed off its Google Goggles technology, which allows users to "search with their eyes," by performing searches based on pictures taken with smartphones using Google's Android software.
