Google Gadgets unleashed at Google Press day!

So far not much has come out of Google press day, but the few new things are an update to the Google Desktop that contains Google Gadgets.  (Think Yahoo widgets)
Another potential that came out of Eric's mouth was being able to take a camera photo of someone and searching to see who they are.  A creepy new way to pick up chicks.  "Hey Michelle, long time no see!"  "Do I know you?"  "Sure I met you at that party last weekend"

More updates as them come in...

Google Health: Probably coming next week

Google Health: Probably coming next week

Marissa Mayer, Google's VP of search products and user experience, mentioned that there would be a couple of big announcements next Wednesday at the annual Google Press Day

Marissa_mayer_lg "Health is an interesting one -- keep your eye out for that next week." But that was about it. Considering that hint, though, an announcement of a Google Health site seems a good bet. Rumors about just such a site have been bouncing around the Web on sites such as SearchEngineWatch

-- Later this year, Google will start integrating video into its results in Google News.
