Google Suggest sneaks out

Google Suggest was just launched on Google Labs today. It was one of those things I got to work on a tiny, tiny bit and I have Kevin Gibbs to thank - he single-handedly figured out the design and implementation of a very neat project. Nice work, Kevin!

It's been suggested at this Slashdot thread that developers could build stuff on the available JavaScript but I'd wait a little before doing that as the code isn't fully-baked and could undergo some significant revision.

    Wow. That's pretty cool man. Another giant leap from the talented people at Google. I just hope they don't use it for evil and try to manipulate people to think certain ways. ;)

    That's cool! By the way, 'Alexandar's Ragtime Band'. Also, 'Blue Skies'. LOTR rocks!! By the way, I am not Elkie or Furby. I just finished writing my summary today, and am really bored. I probably should go read "Q", but I don't want to. D.O.L. is extremely boring. I shall now post this comment.

    Tears to my ears? Podo, you better not be an imposter. Me hoping my computor is wrong, but it says none of the names are Podo. Tell me your initials, Podo. Also, tell me what D.O.L. stands for. Whoever you are, your poetry is horrible.

    You might enjoy my Amazon search tool: Zuggest!
    It works like "Google Suggest" in that is searches Amazon AS YOU TYPE without having to hit submit and without the entire page refreshing in the browser.

    It's built with Javascript, ASP.NET and the Amazon Web Services.

    It's a lot of fun! Check it out at
