    In case any of you missed the latest from Google,

    <BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR>By most measures, Google dominates Web searching. Now you don't have to be on the Web to use it.

    A new service called GoogleMail gives you e-mail access to the popular search engine. Just send a message to google@capeclear.com with your query in the Subject line. The search results will be sent to your In box, usually within minutes.

    The service was created by Cape Clear Software, which specializes in so-called Web services, or software that links online applications with other programs. Initially it was aimed at users of palmtop organizers and mobile phones. But in just a few months GoogleMail has handled more than 30,000 queries from a surprising variety of people, said Colin Newman, vice president for marketing at Cape Clear.

    For example, GoogleMail is fielding many queries from places where online Internet access can be relatively expensive, like Russia and the Philippines. "People are creating e-mail queries offline and then going online just to send them," Mr. Newman explained. "Then they disconnect, and log back on later to download the results."

    The service has also drawn interest from blind users, who use special devices that read them their e-mail. Now those "readers" can handle Web searches as well.

    Because GoogleMail has proved popular, Cape Clear recently introduced AmazonMail (amazon@capeclear.com), which lets users search the Amazon site. "These services won't change the world," Mr. Newman concluded. "But they do suggest a future Web" — one that is a bit more seamless and bit more useful.

    I tried it. Instant email back with first 10 google results.

    Judge your success by the degree that you're enjoying peace, health, and love.

    I can't see the point - you go online, ask for the top 10 results - go off line. Wait 2 mins go online collect your emails, go off line - read the results, go online check out the most likely sites. As google returns most results in less than a second it seems more effort than it is worth. Oh well it's been a long day!

    Hi
    Well I just tried it and it worked pretty fast. Not bad at all. One of the good things about it is that people can then just retrieve the email and click on the links (maybe).

    Anyway, lets see if the service takes off or not.

    regards John

    I've got a similar idea whereby you go to www.google.com, enter your query and receive tens of thousands of results in less time than it takes to send an email.

    Think it will catch on ?

    Another idea is to download the toolbar, so you don't need to type www.google.com - Quick ain't it? [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]
