Image and news searches may never be the same

Today Google announced a pair of online search tools that will change the way people search for images and news articles.

According to the official [Web Link Google blog], Google has released a new search tool called [Web Link News Timeline], which allows users to easily see how news on a particular subject has changed over time. The screen shows links to news articles related to your search organized on a time line by day, week, month, year or decade.

The other tool, [Web Link Similar Images], allows users to sort through the results of an image search more easily by clicking a "similar images" link. For example, a search for "jaguar" will mostly return images of a cat and a car, but clicking a "similar images" link would restrict the search to one of the two.
