Desktop Search for Apple Macintosh: Not Tiger's Spotlight

During all this buzz on desktop search over the past 3 - 6 months, there was no one who came out with a solution for the poor, unknown Apple Macintosh user. I admit, I am a Mac user - never really use a search function to find things on my computer, I keep everything pretty organized. Andy Beal reports on a report by C|Net that Blinkx is to launch a Mac desktop search appliance. Blinkx has on their Web site a little message that reads "blinkx is currently not available for Macintosh, but due to your requests, we're working on it!" But as the article says, Google also said they are working on it.

Anyway, I probably will download it to test it out and then never use it again. However, when Tiger is released, I am sure I will test out spotlight and use it maybe once every two months. Who knows, maybe I will become disorganized like the Web and need to search to find where I put a client's contract or a specification I wrote several months ago.

nice to see another mac user in SEO - I'm looking forward to Tiger too - not just for spotlight but for Safari's RSS capabilities - should be interesting.
