New in-context search tool: blinkx

Thanks to Maggie for pointing this out. New tool takes whatever you are writing or reading and provides links to related material, both on the web and on your machine: blinkx. I haven't tried it out yet but initial reports are good.

Connie, I have tried it and it's really good. You should give it a go. Blinkx comes up with really great links while I'm working, especially good for doing research for essays and so on. The best thing is that it only shows you something if you want to see it. It works secretly in the background and if you click on it, it brings up a whole list of related links. Is free, too. Don't know if you have looked at it yet, but the website to download it from is www.blinkx.com.
