A9 rolls out its nifty Yellow Pages in five more cities.

Podscope – search within a podcast – launched Monday. The CEO of TVEyes, which is behind it, pinged me about it. It sounds really cool.

Blinkx launched new varities of its Smart Folders feature, as well as a promotion with the Hitchhiker’s Guide movie.

A CS grad emailed me with a new engine, and I’m a sucker for solo projects. it’s called DigPeople, another people search engine.

Gross has yet another search company in the news, this time it’s Insider Pages, a local play, driving a million dollars in its first month.

My friends at O’Reilly (partners in the Web 2.0 conference) have launched O’Reilly’s Radar blog. Cool!

Besides its new search history feature, Google announced upgrades to its Advertising Professionals Program and announced a deal to syndicate local results on accuweather. Watch this space.

  1. It would be nice if Inside Pages was linked to the Yellow Pages directory – I just tried it and while I’d like to leave a recommendation, I don’t want to take the time to go find the correct address for the entry. Nice idea though.
