Google Introduces Image-Search, Voice Recognition, + Instant Pages

Google is introducing new features, engineered within mobile devices, such as voice and image search to its traditional Google search box. The company claimed that they will roll out a speech-recognition tool displayed as a microphone button on the right side of Google’s search box for a select number of visitors on Tuesday.

For now, it will only be available on Google’s Chrome Web Browser, a browser that claims 12.5% of the web browsing market share. The new speech recognition tool was programmed to take input both from standard English as well as varying accents to help create a platform for everyone to use.

Over 5K Sites Compromised On Google’s Image Search

If you are using Google’s image search, for any reason, you may want to stop, immediately. Security experts have found thousands of sites compromised by code injection (malicious code that redirects users to fake antivirus applications). In fact, I’ve also been a victim of the Google image malware in the past and had to get a brand new hard drive because a reformatting did not work. What was I searching for? Simple tech stuff like laptops and cellphones. You’d be surprised how many types of images are compromised, but you can bet the most popular searches are the worst.
