I dont know if any of you have heard of this, i have been using it for a little while now and it is so great! its a program from google that uses the google search engine on your comp to instantly pull up anything u type in it also has tons of other great features to go along with it (to many to list) i actualy set it up so its the only thing on my desktop everything else is reached through start or through the search function! its also compleatly customizable.

i heard of privacy concerns as well. and before anyone replies witht eh tetbook "what privacy concerns are you talking about?" post. lets think about the POSSIBLE implications of a program running on your desktop that has complete search access to your ENTIRE computer and is also connected to the internet at the same time. Now ask yourself "do i know that it doesn't broadcast my searches?" "was that little whirr from the HD from something i did or was that inconspicious sound the sound of you being spied on?"
