A Blinxing good idea - or not?


A Blinxing good idea - or not?

Blinkx - the personal inteligent search engine that anticpates your every need as you type - sounds a wonderful concept at first glance - and I can well underestand the rave reviews.

However a piece of software designed to trawl your hard drives - and has access to the internet - sounds like a security disaster waiting to happen.

The consequenses are unimaginable - should this piece of software be hacked or spoofed so as to phone "home".

Or am I missing something here?
