Microsoft "multisearch"

Ina Fried at CNet reports on Microsoft's blend of desktop and web search:
    Microsoft revealed the progress it has made in building search technology on Thursday when it demonstrated a tool that can comb both the Internet and a PC's hard drive. The technology is designed to quickly look through a hard drive, finding all the matches for a word from within documents, e-mails and even e-mail attachments. The version [Yusuf] Mehdi presented also returned Web results on the right side of the page.
Sounds like this is more than just Lookout.

[Thanks, Gary, for pointing out the article.]
