Google Updates

Google has made a few announcements about new and improved services over the past few days.

Google Print, now in beta, adds book content to Google search results. Books in the Google index are returned alongside web search results, and the scanned page from the book is displayed, with the search terms highlighted. Cool stuff.

A number of enhancements have been made to GMail as well. A Windows app, the GMail notifier will alert you when you have new messages. You can also forward messages to another email account, and you can save a draft copy of any message you compose. Finally, an enhanced contact list has a built-in search to find a specific contact.
