Google announced new desktop apps yesterday, including a new version of it’s popular Google Desktop, Google Notebook, Google Trends and Google Co-op.
Interesting new features include being able to add search results to a notebook book along with notes for reference later and share the notebook pages with others.
The Google Trends webapp allows you to glimpse inside the search stats that Google is accumulating from users using it’s search engine. Given a search term, Google Trends shows you the search volume for those search words over time, plus a breakdown of what countries the search terms are originating from. This is interesting information, and information previously only available for sale from marketing companies.
