Google formally announced Google Squared. It's live for you to play with, see [search engines].
The concept is a fun mashup of search with a spreadsheet.
The results are hit and miss. I'm stoked about combining search with extracting structured data from the web. One cool feature is the ability to add attributes and let Google auto-fill the results. The auto-fill is quite spotty. However, I like the ability to iterate, removing poor values. I wish there were more transparency to understand how it is extracting the data to provide active feedback for improvement. Right now, it sometimes improves when you manually enter or correct values.
