Google Instant: The End of Feeling Lucky?

Today, Google announced the introduction of Google Instant, helping search break the speed of the type-barrier. And while I love the instantaneous results, I can't help but wonder, what about the I'm Feeling Lucky button? Is this the end of it? Will it be gone from out lives forever?

Let's hope they find a new place for our little friend. I can't imagine a life without luck.

Up and down and left and right...

I still love looking at 360 degree photos and Google Map's Street View can be great fun to play around with - incidentally, there are some interesting stories going about that advertising may be introduced to Street View...but that's for some other day's writing - today I'm just gona be geeky and get excited about new technology!

The video was made by Immersive Media who have a few demo videos here.

Exciting, isn't it?!

*Geek-rave over*
