IBM is going to offer free, downloadable, entry-level search software that

It's called IBM OmniFind Yahoo! Edition and it can riffle through a maximum

Google CEO Eric Schmidt has confirmed one of his tight-lipped company's open
secrets: it's planning to add a PowerPoint knockoff to Docs & Spreadsheets,
its on-demand productivity suite.
