Blinkx Pico - Smallest Desktop Search Tool

Blinkx is developing Pico, a smaller version of Blinkx desktop search tool that is just 1 MB and consumes little PC system resources.

Blinkx founder Suranga Chandratillake says the Pico approach "reverses the process of search" and "simplifies it by bringing content to you".

Pico works by identifying the main topic and then shows similar items, categorised by media type and accessible via icons at the top of the current web page [Smart Folders].

Pico's context-sensitive technology will automatically retrieve news stories, Wikipedia entries, TV and video, blogs and podcasts related to the item on the web you’re currently viewing.

Blinkx Pico is not related to PicoSearch that offers site search box for websites.
