Google topped tech headlines on Wednesday, unveiling what it called its “Knowledge Graph,” a Bing-like “snapshot” panel with results that appear closer to Wolfram Alpha’s own knowledge engine. Now, when a user searches for an “object” – such as the “Taj Mahal,” “Mona Lisa,” or “Leonardo da Vinci,” Google’s search results will try to identify the proper context for the search, identify key facts about it, and then lead onto related topics for further discovery.
Meanwhile, Verizon Wireless said that users grandfathered into unlimited data plans will soon have to switch to tiered pricing if they upgrade their devices. Over the summer, Verizon plans to introduce data share plans, which will allow for multiple devices to be connected to the same account – whether that be families or small businesses. When that happens, bid adieu to unlimited data.
