Google's CADIE

Today, if you noticed on Google's main page, the site released "a singular upgrade to your online life," a Cognitive Autoheuristic Distributed-Intelligence Entity, or CADIE, "the first evolving intelligent system."

Other improvements include Docs on Demand, a program that finishes your sentences and even allows you to incorporate subliminal messages into presentations; and Google Chrome 3D, with printable glasses.

And if you go to CADIE's blog, you can win a free Google search! I won, and found that YouTube is upside down and the The Guardian is leaving print to become the first paper in the world to be published on Twitter:
