Google Launches “In Quotes” Project To Compare US Presidential Candidates
Google has launched a new labs project named In Quotes. In Quotes allows you to compare quotes between the two US Presidential candidates, John McCain and Barack Obama.
For example, if Net neutrality is an important topic for you, just type in “neutrality” and up comes quotes from each candidate that you can scan through:
This can be a fun tool to use in the upcoming elections but you should also be careful when using such a tool. Google themselves has a clear disclaimer at the bottom of the page that reads:
Quotes and their speakers are determined automatically by a computer program and we don’t guarantee the completeness or accuracy of the information you may see. The dates you see represent when the article in which the quote appears was added to Google News.
I am curious why searching for net neutrality does not return the same results. Maybe a bug?
