Google makes its search more mobile - but misses a trick

Google has made searching the web from your mobile easier and more personal. Try it here.

Or text this in your mobile browser:

You can customise to feature pre-selected weather, news, stocks and movies information, tailored to a specific geographic area. However - it ain't that bright. You have to tell it where you are. Not the sharpest tool on a mobile, then...

By factoring in a user's location, the new mobile search engine is claimed to deliver a more relevant list of web results than its previous version.

Yeah, provided you can be bothered to keep telling it where you are.

The rate of change is so rapid it's difficult for one person to keep up to speed. Let's pool our thoughts, share our reactions and, who knows, even reach some shared conclusions worth arriving at?
