Search engine on your computer

Topic: 

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.
