:CueCat reborn

By | April 23, 2009

If Eric Schmidt is serious about saving the newspaper industry, perhaps Google can come up with a :CueCat-like device (I even thought of a name for this: CURL) that can recognise URLs published in news articles and wirelessly direct a user’s computer to the relevant webpages without requiring the user to manually type out the URL. (Whether this device integrates with IE, Firefox, Safari, Chrome or other Web browsers is a question that I shall leave to other people to ponder.)

Even better if the device has built-in memory to store the URLs scanned for later access. An LCD screen can further enhance the user experience by allowing convenient URL management – maybe a function to post links to Twitter, Facebook, Plurk and other social networking sites would be the icing on the cake.
