Google is announcing as I type a new feedreader – a first generation one, but full text, which I think is the best approach. It’s not up yet, but it will be shortly, in their Labs section.
Google also announced its work on determining sex of a person using pattern recognition in photos. This is a first step toward ID’ing faces, then searching by face. Cool.
Yahoo, by the way, also showed some cool photo stuff, a flickrstream that shows tags and images by cluster a long a timeline.
Update: It’s live.
