Apparently Google bought an advanced text search algorithm developed by Ori Alon, a Israeli student; he now works at Google.

It seems Microsoft and Yahoo were also trying to get a hold of this, so it must be some big deal.

Another article with more details – http://www.physorg.com/news6255.html
Ok, i'll stop posting on this now, the first news article misspelled the guys name.The correct spelling is Ori Allon. Because of the misspelling, I was finding it difficult to find more info.

This is a post of Franck Poisson, from Exalead (future big search engine...), about this algorithm :

I tried to translate :

"The last aquisition of Google is... a student
(...describtion of algorithm...)
[On exalead], we have got the same since 6 years... it's called REFINE on Exalead..."

I'm not sure why everyone is all fired up over Orion, this technology already exists in ConceptQ Pro.
