ABSTRACT
The article presents updates on Web search engines. Hakia, a new search engine in public beta, tries to make the highlighting experience better in two ways. Hakia's developers say the engine looks not just for the words in your query, but for the meaning. It also tries to match one's query with phrases on the sites it finds that match that meaning. SpaceTime, a Free public beta download, has some good ideas, though it is still too buggy to use regularly. It arranges large thumbnails of sites in a line stretching out into a blue sky. Microblogging, or broadcasting one-sentence updates on one's life, is the Web's latest trend. The early leader is Twitter, but Pownce, an invitation-only beta, adds the ability to send files and easily make links or format information on events.
