Google upgrades search engine: search by image, voice on PC

Google makes one of the world's leading mobile operating systems. It does e-mail and an office suite and photo sharing and Internet phone service, and does them all well. It's even getting into solar power and is trying to invent the self-driving car. But for all its far-flung ambition, the company isn't synonymous with many things. It's synonymous with one thing: its namesake search engine, the business that started it all.
Google Voice Search, a technology which was pioneered on Google’s mobile products will now be incorporated into the search engine giant’s desktop search page. Users will now be able to tell their browser what they’re looking for, simply by speaking into their computer’s microphone.
Google said that over the past year, Voice Search traffic has grown six-fold, and that every day, people speak more than two years worth of speech into the system.
