Everyone's favourite search engine now has a University Search that lets you browse all (or most in North America, I'm guessing) universities, then search within their sites for admissions information or whatever tickles your fancy. I popped into Auburn University and found that they have a news feed, which could be a nice addition to my planning portfolio if I was a high school student planning to go there next year.
George also unearthed the new Google's Personalized Search. Great concept that adds all-important context to search queries.The dynamic personalization slider on the results pages is fascinating. Useful? I'm not sure, but it still makes you wonder how long it will be before Google rules the world.
