Search engine on your computer


Kenjin was launched officially this week. They claim \"Autonomy Kenjin is the first Internet information service that delivers the right information to you exactly when you need it – no matter where it happens to be. From the Web, from your hard drive or from people who know.\"It works like a search engine, but the program is on your computer. They make it sound like it\'ll kill off Yahoo. I\'ll be downloading and trying it soon.
