The search engine war between Google and Microsoft is heating up.Google has introduced nine new features to attract more and more users.The new options are hidden from a user and you need to select the Show Options button after searching for some keyword to active the sidebar.The bets thing about these features is that they allow you refine your results and this is a most welcomed feature for any user.
The another great innovation by Google is that you have the option to see that page that you have already visited by clicking Visited pages which makes the searching more easier. This saves the time of the user considerably and this is another one feature which I felt worth mentioning.The timeline feature and Google Wonder Wheel are better integrated with the search results.Bing has already seen a set back with its market shares going down by 3.25%. Bing has to come up with some new strategy to stay in competition with Google.

The new iPod Nano has all the old features intact with the new features added to it.The extra features are added but the size remains same and which makes it even more interesting.The new iPod Nano you have a small video camera player and I feel it is an astonishing triumph of technology.Some technolgy experts feel that this effort by Apple is mainly because of the reduction the iPod users but I don't feel so.
The other major features in iPod Nano is FM radio. This up gradation is the most expected by the users and finally it has come out.The new Nano iPod price is $149 for the 8-gigabyte model and $179 for the 16 GB version.I feel it is a bit costlier than expected.Well people who feel you can spend that much will surely have a treat with this.
The technical advancement is so high that we are heading to a world where we will soon see Robots doing operation with the help of Artificial intelligence.Hunterian Museum of the Royal College in England has organized a medical camp for surgeons where they will explain the places where robots are used in the field of medicine.
Doctors are now having surgical instruments and are doing the operations,but very soon robots will be doing that with human assistance.This is totally based on Artificial Intelligence and scientist feel that if that state is attained there will be more precision in the operations carried out.
PROBOT is the name of this project and this idea was started long back in 1988.Since then the process is take one step further but but due to lack of funds the whole idea gets hampered.RI-Man is one robot which I admire the most.It could lift a patient carefully and the main idea was to use this kind of robots as night duty nurse.Unfortunately due to lack of funds this project got shutdown,but they are coming up with a better version called RIBA.Well but very soon we will see a world with robots.
The RIMAN was so famous that it made in to the Time Magazine best invention list in the year 2006.The Robot Saya is another great find since the robot can teach school kids.What I personally feel is that lack of fund is what is hampering these kind of research oriented projects.

5) The game keeps you occupied for hours since there are about 35 courts including grass and clay courts.
