Google Launches Universal Search

On 5/14/2007, Google launched its revamped Internet
search engine. The new search function now integrates
a variety of media, including video, books, maps and news
into a "universal" list of search results. The redesigned
search engine eliminates the need for users to select
among Google's (often confusing) array of individual search
pages. For example, a search for "I have a dream" will
retrieve the text of Martin Luther King Jr.'s civil rights speech
as well as links to audio/video files and images of
King delivering the speech.
