Google has just launched a hybrid news search service called "Google News Archive" which can search historical as well as other
content that date backs over 200 years. This is a very good news for history junkies. You can now read some news on Google
that gives you a timeline ending in 1960s. "The goal of this service is to allow people to search and explore how history unfolded,"
said Anurag Acharya, Google's distinguished engineer, who played a major role in shepherding the new product.
Google has tied up with many prestigious organizations to cater news. Time, The Wallstreet Journal, The Guardian,
The Washington Post and The New York Times will serve Google to provide the news. Google has also collaborated with LexisNexis, Factiva, HighBeam Research, and Thomson Gale to index the full-text of content that may be as many as 200 years old.
