Add Google Gadgets to Results

Google now allows you to convert Google Gadgets to subscribed links as part of Google Co-op. One of the more interesting result widgets is the translator; once subscribed to, it’s triggered by entering e.g. translate “i love you” into french in Google web search. Other gadgets, as Micro Persuasion’s Steve Rubel points out, include a clock and calendar, a traffic map, and weather info. “Given the size of the Google Gadget ecosystem, this is an important development ... It turns Google into a giant command-line interface for web data,” Steve Rubel comments.
