Tech Today: Google Instant Pages, Xbox 720 at E3 2012

Google adds a little more speed and convenience to web-search, BBC uses iPad to help its journos and the dumbest Facebooker of all time is convicted. It's the tech news that broke after you logged off.

Google launches Instant Pages web-search
Google has identified the need for speed by announcing Google Instant Pages at the Inside Search event on Wednesday evening. Now, when you enter a search query, Google will predict which results you'll choose and begin loading them in the background, meaning when you select the link, that web-page will load instantly, saving you 2-5 seconds each time.

Voice and Image Search coming to browsers too
Google has announced that it's bringing  Voice Search and Image Search to desktop-based searches. Image Search will allow you to simply drag and drop and image into the search bar, upload from the hard-drive, copy and paste a URL or use a browser add-on. Voice Search adds the little microphone we've become familiar with on Android.
