Whatever Happened to Did you Mean

Google’s revamped interface was applauded by many but left some disappointed. Google changed many new features including the Google Logo, brought in a new sidebar, new buttons and even a new search bar.

A small yet powerful new addition was a changed “Did you Mean”. Did you Mean was Google’s famous spelling corrector. Whenever someone typed in something such as “Stev Jobs”, it would result in a message – Did you Mean – Steve Jobs.

With Google now updated, this feature stands updated too. Now two messages appear – Showing results for Steve Jobs and Search instead for Stev Jobs. By default, Google would show results for the correct one, but if the users are still sure about the search query, they need to click on “Search instead for.”

Android on iPod Touch

We’ve seen hackers porting Google’s Mobile OS, Android to iPhone 2G and iPhone 3G. The same guys are back to work and wanna make Android run on iPod touches.

There isn’t any official date yet, but it is in the making. A blog post mentions that the hacker has been successful in porting Android on a first-gen iPod Touch but things such as WLAN, multitouch drivers and sound need some extra attention.

Anyways, anytime soon we could be hearing the announcement and let’s hope that this wiz-kid is able to port it on an iPad.
