Watson

Watson is kind of a proactive search.



Kind of interesting. Watson by Intellext.

I've been using Watson too. I think the coolest thing is not when you're web browsing, but when you're reading email or working in powerpoint, and it suggests blogs and stuff related to you document.

That is cool, except I would guess that just as some worried about the targeted marketing in Gmail, this would not be much different. If it is targeting results based upon what you are doing and what is in your e-mail then there would be the potential for someone to gather and store that knowledge about you.

But it doesn't. Watson doesn't record or store any of the details about what the user is looking at. Intellext keeps no information it could use to do what you're suggesting. We've been pretty clear about that from the beginning:
