The Google Mini

Odd how this is announced comes just after the Mac mini is announced, but anyway Google is now selling a Mini Version Of It's Internal Search Devise.

I think the idea is for people working in a large organisation, you tend to be told about documents that you can't find on the network because each department has a different way of storing their files and data. So if you want something about the 'Code Of Practise' for the managers (for example). Rather than having to spend hours trying to find it, you can simply use the internal Google devise on the server (the Google Mini) and that will find what you are looking for, for you.

I think this is a great idea for a product, but I don't think its something suitable for every organisation because most organisations don't normally have that much clutter.
