Woogle -> Google for your Desktop
For a long time, I've wondered why Google can search the whole freak'n internet in < 1 second, but it takes Windows minutes to search my little hard drive. Scott has me thinking, what good are folders? Actually, folders are great, but what good is a massive hierarchy of folders that all roll up under a common root? Does anyone really want to find anything by starting at C:? If you had Google for your computer, would you use anything else? Maybe in a future version of Windows, the desktop should just be a search form. Woogle, anyone? [Early Adopter Weblog]
Preach on my brothers! I need to write a .NET application that lets me exploit the Indexing Service...We all have Google on our desktops...it's right here and has been for years - the Indexing Service Query Form in the MMC. It's just not friendly and Explorer appears not to care. What IS the sordid relationship between the Indexing Service (that obstensibly gets turned on by the Explorer Search but never used!) and the Shell?
