Video: Google Real-Time Search Event (Plus Noshing!)

Innovations also included a hopped-up mobile translation service, voice-querying in Japanese and Google Goggles, which searches from pictures you take on your mobile device.

This video includes one of the real-time data partners that Google (GOOG) announced today, MySpace’s Chief of Products Jason Hirschhorn, as well as Google PR dude Nate Tyler and a view of the superior spread the company put out for the occasion–unlike the food-free Bing search event by Microsoft (MSFT) a week ago.
