Je vous en parlais ici au sujet de la beta : Sphere : nouveau moteur de recherche de blogs
Sphere est en ligne depuis ce matin.
Voici le Communqiué de la version 1.5 :
"Here is the url: www.sphere.com. New in this V1.5 release:
- custom range histogram;
- sphere it bookmarklet that makes it easy to find blog posts that relate to what you're reading on the Web;
- top queries this hour/ this week;
- RSS for search results;
- community feedback buttons throughout the site;
- expanded related media verticals including podcasts (Yahoo! API), books (Amazon API), and photos (CNET Webshots API);
- expanded related news articles coverage (over 50 mainstream news sites such as CNN, NYT, ESPN, Fox, USA Today to name a few);
- expanded profiles;
- featured blogs for 12,000+ keyword search terms covering over 500 broad topics including baseball, anime, food, web 2.0, tech news, knitting, culture, etc.; and
- a brand new back end that scales.
The best two featues are the custom range feature (a search on 'mohammed cartoons' really illustrates its utility) and the sphere it bookmarklet (take a chance, download and it'll change your life). Also, check out the featured blogs for a number of topics like baseball, food, knitting, motherhood, web 2.0, google, etc - you'll find featured blogs for about 12,000 keyword search terms. And check out the related media for almost any search - you'll now find podcasts, books and photo's in addition to our news articles."
