Google has recently announced two of their latest developments – Similar Images and Google News Timeline.
With the new Similar Images feature, users can now find images that look like an existing result simply by clicking on a link. Using visual similarity, there is no need to refine the text of your search, instead, you can just click on the link of an image you like to quickly narrow your search.

Google News Timeline
Google News Timeline organizes information chronologically by presenting results from Google News and other data sources on a zoomable, graphical timeline. You can navigate through time by dragging the timeline, setting the time scale to days, weeks, months, years, or decades, or just including a time period in your query (i.e., “1977″). To see this in action, check out the results viewed by month in the summer of 2006.
Google News Timeline can present results from various different sources, including both recent and archival news, scanned newspapers and magazines, blog posts, sports scores and media like music and movies. You can view multiple sources simultaneously, allowing each source to lend context to the others.
