Google Desktop Search, Version 2 Beta
Posted by Gordon Smith

After numerous failed searches, I deleted Google Desktop from my computers last year. Now it's back in Version 2, which includes a new product called Google Sidebar. Yaaaaaaaawwwwnnnn.

Sidebar is another piece of software designed to bring news, weather, stock quotes, email, and a photo to my desktop. No, thanks.

Does anyone remember PointCast? This is a sleek version of that, with some extra bells and whistles. (The features are very much like MyYahoo.)

As you look through the features, consider how to get all of this information now, without Sidebar. If you are like me, you have a system for gathering and retrieving, and the only question is how much of that information you like to have on your desktop at once. I tend to keep my desktop display simple, and the thought of adding a sidbar of clutter is not appealing.
