Google Facebook Offline collaboration

I was wondering why I had not seen this before. Was it an update of Google Chrome or was it simply something that went past me in the busy of work.

However, what I saw today was interesting for all to know. We all know now that Public data shared on Facebook is cached by Google for its results.  Today I see that as I type “Facebook.com” on my Google Chrome, I am asked if I want to search “within” Facebook on the right top corner of the browser window.

The 'Press Tab to Search Within Facebook' feature in Google Chrome

While its a new concept to search within a website right from your search engine, Google has been reinventing itself and has a similar engagement with Flickr online. And yes the search within Offline (on Google Chrome) feature is available for Flickr, Youtube, WordPress, Yahoo and Bing too.  Ironically Blogspot or Blogger does not have the same enabled.

Now is this collaboration or the new Revenue Model of Google? Got to find out.

Do let me know if you know. Welcome your thoughts and observations in the Comments. Will be glad to discuss.

P.S> Did find this article which discusses the same - http://www.kabatology.com/09/06/hit-tab-to-search-within-google-chrome-address-bar-omnibox/ , however my google.com entry on chrome does not give me the ‘Press Tab to search..’ option. Does everyone one else get it?

WordPress on BlackBerry reviewed

While its easy to write big posts on my laptop, posting it through my BlackBerry Pearl has its own thrill. I can use it while travelling and not be bothered about time.

WordPress for BlackBerry allows me to post while travelling.So Cool!

A simplified interface and buttons to include Ordered and Unordered lists; the usual Bold, Italics and Underlined and s way to include Media and Links, makes it so perfectly mobile.

If I expect more from WordPress for BlackBerry on a mobile interface, I might just have to bear a rather sluggish software.
Overall a Good Experience. If you differ, do write to me in the Comments and I would love to discuss the same.
