A while ago Google unveiled a enhancement for web search which means you can now return results "instantly" wow fantastic you're possibly thinking...you're probably also thinking, what is this Google Instant you're talking about?
Sadly even though Google Instant is available in the UK if you're not using Chrome, Firefox, Safari or Internet Explorer 8 you're not going to see any changes to Google so no instant results for you!
Don't worry though you can read all about Google Instant on the Google Instant help pages and hope that maybe one day you'll have access to a "modern browser"
If you're lucky enough to be using one of these Internet Browsers then why not have a read of the following blog posts which take a look at Google Instant in more detail.

The latest issue of Legal Information Management (LIM) is out and with it comes a raft of useful articles covering a wide variety of work in the legal sector.
Some highlights for us from the latest issue are:
- Chris Holland's article on the Digital Economy Act and the implications for Libraries.
- Steven Whittle's article on the role of metadata at the IALS and a look at some of the digitisation projects that are being undertaken by the IALS.
- Fiona Fogden's article on mashing content from a variety of sources into a single location.
And last but certainly not least of our picks is Allie Lustigman's article on Web 2.0: How is it being Used? What can it do for Law Firms
