Have you noticed how easy Google makes it to search?

July 7th, 2013 by Heather Maloney

If you have you ever tried searches in Google like this:

  • ‘definition of altruism’
  • ‘convert 7 feet to metres’
  • or typed in an address you’re looking for

you’ll know that Google has been doing a lot of work to make search so much faster and easier for everyone. This is particularly important for people who are using smart phones to carry out their searches.

One of the more recently added features in the smart phone Google Search app is a set of “search cards” – or standard searches – that Google executes when you open the app. You can choose which ones you want, and they range from “time it will take me to get home” through to flight information (shown for a flight you have searched on before).

The only thing that I worry about with all this ease, and answers to readily at your fingertips, is that we’ll start (or maybe that started a long time before) using Google as the full and only source of truth. Your thoughts?
