There's been probably nothing new since 2005: http://friendfeed.com/e/81f34b85-7bc0-b621-1db4-3902c8621dff/Did-Google-Just-Expose-Semantic-Data-in-Search/

Yes, it's been around since April 2005 as "Google Q&A":

Of course Google Q&A is not new. I just wanted to show that ReadWriteWeb, probably the most popular site anxiously searching for Google's-killer-based-on-semantic-web (see their list of alternative search engines)... have just discovered that Google is the best semantic search engine!

i was mystified by the "discovery" of this from ReadWriteWeb, i guess they've been out of touch with search engines updates and features. Lets give them time folks.

** Nothing new here folks... now back to your regular programming schedule... **

Did you hear about Google saving the day via Maps? ; police officer (or deputy) uses GMaps to locate missing couple and does his own triangulation. That's news!

Don't know. They think to be up-to-date. But of course this "discovery" shows that they are not.

[put at-character here]milivella: i meant to say that in sarcasm, as if they knew whats the latest or up-to-date info on Google .... which they don't.

Anyway, I think there are new things. I've just searched for "zip code of [a city]", in French. And for the first time, I got a onebox from Wikipedia data which gave me the correct information – it never happened before for this pattern of query.
