Wouldn't it be nice to have a search tool that retrieves various links or news items related to what you were currently looking at on the Internet? Well, the beta-version of Blinkx does precisely that. Using self-learning algorithms to understand the context of what users are reading on their computer screen (such as emails, websites, and the like), the application works in the background to instantly connect to related information on the web. On the Blinkx website, visitors can learn more about the program, view screenshots of the application at work, and read through a FAQ section. While a version for the Macintosh is planned for the near future, this version of Blinkx is compatible only with systems running Windows 98 and above.
