Apple Rolls Out Smarter Web Answers for Spotlight Search

· · Link

Some Apple users are seeing smarter web answers when they use iOS Spotlight Search and Siri.

The new web answers appear to be a further expansion of this technology. If the statistics are not readily available from the knowledge database, it seems Apple is now using algorithms to crawl websites and find possible responses to questions.

I think this is great, and it might be the first front-facing results we’re seeing from Apple’s hiring of John Giannandrea.

Startpage Launches New Anonymous View Feature

Startpage is a private search engine that doesn’t track you or store data about you. The company recently redesigned the website and added a couple of new features. One of them is called Anonymous View.

Clicking search results means leaving the protection of Startpage.com. This could lead to a barrage of cookies being installed on your device. That’s why we developed the “Anonymous View” feature. With “Anonymous View” you can visit search results in full privacy, and keep on browsing: They’ll never know you were there. You’ll find the feature next to every search result.

If you’re looking for an alternative search engine, especially a private one, check out Startpage.
