Japan invests 5 billion yen to develop a new search engine

    The Japanese government intends to invest 5 billion yen in 2007 ($ 1 - 116.5 yen) to develop a new Internet search engine. System development should take about 3 years, Itar-Tass reports with reference to Japanese media.

    A feature of the new search system will be its compatibility with digital television, that is, it will be possible, "sitting on the couch", using a conventional TV remote control to surf the Internet and search for information on a topic of interest to the broadcast. In addition, the new Japanese system will be available for car enthusiasts who use navigation devices. They, in particular, through the Internet will be able to receive data from surveillance cameras in parking lots to look for a parking place.
