I can't stop being amazed by Google

25 Sep 2003

I discovered It looks like Google have scanned in, OCR-ed, then indexed whole stacks of printed product catalogs. For example, a search for CPU cooler produces little JPEG extracts from printed catalogs, with the search terms highlighted in the JPEG

I don't think I will ever ceased to be amazed, pleased, and tickled-pink about the good things Google do. Google are even running a programming competition at TopCoder. They are even looking for more staff.


In fact, this now gives me a way to read Joel's articles in Programmers Paradise. Searching for Joel Spolsky will lead you to page 11 of the April 2003 edition.
