The breaking news this morning is that Google has released their newest version of Desktop Search called Google Desktop 2 (now in beta). It uses a sidebar format and apparently does a lot more than just search; it also integrates email status, webfeeds reader, weather and stock reports and even a little picture slideshow thingamajig. I'll write up more about it if I get around to installing it later today. In the meantime, check out this review from InsideGoogle. Be sure to also read the comments.
