Google’s popular “voice search” tool for mobile devices is now being rolled out to the desktop.  That’s one of the announcements Google execs made today at an event in San Francisco.  If you’re running the Chrome browser, you’ll now see a little microphone icon which, when clicked, will allow you to speak the item you are searching for.  (Chrome is an excellent & fast browser, BTW.)

Google also unveiled a “search by image” feature inspired by its mobile Google Goggles app.  Insert an image and Google will try to provide a search result that it feels is associated with that image.
