Interesting new additions to Google Labs

Google Notebook [via Free Hogg] attaches to your browser toolbar allowing you to:

  • Clip and collect information as you surf the web.
  • Organize your notes from the web page you’re on.
  • Access your notes from anywhere.
  • Make your notes public.

Google Trends [via orgtheory.net] analyzes a portion of Google web searches to compute how many searches have been done for the term you enter relative to the total number of searches done on Google over time. Also, when it detects a spike in the volume of news stories for that term, it labels the graph and displays the headline of an automatically selected Google News story written near the time of that spike. It also displays the top cities, regions, and languages for the term. Interesting tool for researchers!
