Easy Search on Mobile Devices
Posted on 11-Oct-2005 10:38 by M Freitas | Tags Filed under: Blog



Chris Pirillo's new meta search service gada.be is a welcome addition to the search world. It is a simple to use service that will bring results from different search engines (including Google News, Google Blog, FindArticles, Yahoo! News, Wikipedia, Feed24, Yahoo!, MSN, IceRocket, Feedster, Plazoo and Technorati).

Have you noticed the trend? These are not the usual search engines, but only the ones related to blog and news. So you get information about current topics, not archived pages.

Why is this an easy to use search for mobile devices? Because you can specify the search query on the domain name! For example geekzone.gada.be will return results that include Geekzone. Unlike other mobile search services that make you wait for the first page to load, fill the search field, click Submit, this one will bring results directly from the Address entered.

Quite funky. And if you add /OPML (as in geekzone.gada.be/opml) then you get the results in opml format.

Of course, if you are looking for websites, not for comments, blogs or news, then you can always user Google Mobile.
