Google mines Internet for "what you love"
Wednesday 13 July 2011
Google on Tuesday rolled out a tool that mines the Internet for blogs, pictures, videos, and more based on the answer to the question "What do you love?"
A website launched at wdyl.com has a query box for answers to that question and a blue button icon adorned with a white heart.
Searches return a collage of options including finding what you love nearby, exploring it in 3D graphics, calling someone about it, and seeing related patents, trends or news.
The tool was built to showcase Google creations for digging into what the Internet has to offer about topics.
"Type in something that you love - polar bears, space travel, pickup trucks, Lady Gaga, early Foghat - whatever strikes your fancy," Google creative lab vice president Andy Berndt said in a blog post.
"No matter what it is, we'll give you back something that will let you get even more into what you love," he promised.
