Looks like Google might have got caught ripping off another competitor, again!! In the beginning of November, Leapfish launched itís new version of itís search engine:

Real-time search, lots of options the Google doesnít have and a selection of search engine feeds. The video shows the power of real-time search, so looks like Google decided to do a video, and show it now has real-time search:

Personally, I like the Leapfish video better, but you can clearly see that Google now has real-time search Ė after Leapfish had it.

The leaping of conclusions here is astonishing.

Hasn't Google always had real-time search? I've been using it.

...and I never heard of Leapfish until now.

Leapfish appears to have copied from Dogpile...or Metacrawler.

Google is still better.

Although, Doogle.org (http://www.doogle.org) is probably the best.

Three years? Something like that. When I worked as a metadata consultant in 2005, it was internally available.
