Google is adding Google Timeline to its arsenal of innovations. If you want to serach information of a particular Company say Dell it gives you information in a timeline from the time the company was launched to the time the present time. So a neat timely division.
But I think its high time that NLP Serach Engines come up to make it easier to search for non Tekno people. Also Ask has dome some good work like it shows up Videos and blogs along with the list of serach results in nest columns. May be google should follow in it too.
