Google has demonstrated the nature and scope of Internet search with the introduction of new features that bring search results to life with a dynamic stream of real-time content from across the web. Search results now comes with live updates from people on popular sites like Twitter and FriendFeed, as well as headlines from news and current blog posts which are relevant to users query, latest results are ranked to show the freshness of information right on the search results page.

Also, its new Google Goggles visual search tool for Android brings high-tech twist to accessing information. It allows users to submit pictures rather that keywords as queries. However, the service is being launched in Google Labs because it's experimental and can only recognize certain objects. And it currently supports photo-based searchings: on books, DVDs, landmarks, logos, contact info, artwork, businesses, products, barcodes, and plain text.
