With typing and voice search already under its belt, Google's aiming its search sights on another target: handwriting. With a simple setting activation, you can now hand write your searches on your iOS or Android smartphones and tablets, and like magic, it'll scour the Web based on your scribbles.
Google is always adding little bells and whistles to its various platforms, and recently has been tweaking its mainstay, Search, pretty aggressively. The latest addition is the "Knowledge Graph," which will divine what you're really looking for and spit out a ton of relevant information.
Google's come a long way from being just an online search company. Although it has its fingers in Android, Chrome, Google TV, Google+ and a million other projects, its special trick is and will always online search. Google made this six minute video to show the progress of its search business since 1996.
