Okay i am back with another idea , and people can see what they think , first off i am a big fan of hal being able to retrieve information from the internet without opening pages , BUT having said that i know in some cases it's good to be able to see a web page especially if their are pictures or illistrations .
So here is my suggestion :
What to me would be good is if their is a distintion of two sets of trigger words and effects from it . in a search uhp.
for instance if the user says " tell me about "the white house" and the hal program would just retrieve the info from wikipedia , etc. and hal would just speak and say (read) the information to you .
on the flip side variation of another trigger word you could say " open information on the white house" then hal would open a website page .
This dual combination based on trigger words for speak or open in my opinion would create a better search option . based on plug ins already made .
Any comments ?
