Let\u2019s take a break from beating up on Google for cooperating (or not cooperating) with government spy programs and talk about what Google does really well: search. Every now and then I take a look at the company\u2019s Insidesearch blog, and more often than not I find something cool and noteworthy.\n\n\n\tOne recent headline caught my eye right away: "Time to back away from the cookie jar? Introducing nutrition info in search." I haven\u2019t had a cookie jar in my house for many years, but I do pay attention to what I eat.\n\n\n\tSuppose I want to know how much fat there is in one avocado. Using Google's new search gadget you can simply type the question, or say it, and you get an answer that looks something like this:\n\n\n\tHere are a few more examples:\n\n\n\tUnfortunately, you do not get the same detailed answers when you ask about specific brands. For example, when I asked Google about sugar in sodas I saw an info box like the one on avocados, shown above. But when I asked about sugar in Coca-Cola, Google returned a set of links. (I bet lawyers had something to do with that.)\n\n\n\tFor now, nutrition search only works for about 1000 foods, and it is not available everywhere. Over time, Google says it will "be adding more features, foods, and languages."\n\n\n\tThese new search features may not be as important as the NSA's snooping, but they are certainly tastier.
