Google Goggles: Search Taken to the Next Level
Just when you think Google has done it all, they go and introduce another innovation that leaves you in utter amazement. Google has taken its search to the visual mode with its Google Goggles mobile app for Android! Simply snap a photo on your phone and the app will give you relevant information associated to the items or landmarks photographed. It will be Android-only for now, and it's available in the Android market.
I've given it a go a couple of times on my T-Mobile G1 phone, but it took too long to "analyze" the photo and I simply don't have the patience. It's certainly a cool idea with lots of potential, but there are a few kinks that need to be worked out before I try it again. I'll stick to using Google search the old-fashioned way for now!
