Google Squared Organizes Search Results In Spreadsheet Form

google squaredGoogle Squared is the latest product by Google and it is basically Google in spreadsheet form. Here is how Google Squared works in a nutshell:

Google Squared is a search tool that helps you quickly build a collection of facts from the Web for any topic you specify.

  • Facts about your topic are organized as a table of items and attributes (we call them “Squares” for fun).
  • Customize these Squares to see just the items and attributes you’re interested in.
  • See the websites that served as sources for the information in your Square.
  • Save and share Squares with others.

As usual, we have decided to take Google Squared for a test run and surprisingly, Google Squared might just be the next extension to the main Google search engine. You can add and remove columns and rows of search results which consists of text, data and images all mashed together.

Let’s say you are buying a digital camera, just type digital cameras in Google Squared and it will return you with many models of digital cameras, along with an images and other information like description, manufacturer and resolution so you can compare them side-by-side in a spreadsheet form without having to search for them individually.

Of course, it is still in testing so sometimes it may match the wrong results together or it cannot find the results to form a “square”. But other than that, we see immense potential in Google Squared. Looking for the best deals or doing some research?? Google Squared might just have it all covered for you.

  1. Google Squared appears to be similar to my patent application:

    Frankly, I am getting a Déjà vu effect while going through the “Google Squared” application because it appears to be very similar in function to my United States patent application which was filed on April 12, 2007 and as publicly disclosed by the United States Patent and Trademark Office on October 16, 2008, when the patent application was published.

    My patent application is titled as “Method And System For Research Using Computer Based Simultaneous Comparison And Contrasting Of A Multiplicity Of Subjects Having Specific Attributes Within Specific Contexts” bearing Document Number “20080256023” and Inventor name “Nair Satheesh” which may be viewed at upon Patent Applications: Quick Search.

    Google Squared appears to be using at least some if not many of the same methods and systems as set forth by me more than two years ago in my patent application. In fact there are many more methods and systems disclosed in my patent application which I believe will help resolve certain inaccuracies found in current Google Squared application.

    I have issued legal notices to Google through my Patent Attorney in the US but Google has not responded yet to any of my notices.
