... at least for me. Very, very cool stuff, just drag & drop a picture onto the search box:

Pokemo, it's indeed extremely cool. I'm currently working full-time on iPad games & apps. Just today I submitted a new app I'm very excited about! I hope in some weeks I can announce it on versuspad.com . If I can manage to port some of the apps to Android that could also be of interest for another blog post, due to its relation to Google. So in other words, right now I'm doing iPad apps creation instead of blogging, even though I like both!

I like the way that it tells you what it thinks the image is. For example, if I drag a picture of the US President into the search box it tells me "Best guess for this image: Barack Obama".

And if Google doesn't already know what the image is, it invites you to tell it (crowd-sourcing style) by putting gray text in the search box saying "Describe Image Here".

But this type of forum posts can be selected to the main page twice a month or something. Now the main page is almost dead :(
