Google's recent announcement that it upgraded the "Mini" version of its Search Appliance ("GSA") inspires me to share some useful links that have been accumulating:1. Google's vaunted patents revolve mostly around public Web search...

2. The new IBM/Yahoo Lucene (oops..."OmniFind") search offering is probably not a Google-killer technically, but seems to target the same Web site search scenarios...

Google continues to work to get inside the enterprise. You the buyer need to carefully evaluate what "enterprise" search really means in your context before investing in any technology.
