I recently worked with a product also built with the Lucene search engine. It really is a remarkable and flexible tool. The ability to find something quickly and use it is arguably better than having it in an indexed list or other container. One of the interesting aspects of the product was the ability to index new information sources like a database, corporate email, any set of documents or anything else that was capable of being accessed through a digital interface.
I use Google chrome and only rarely use the bookmarks since I can search and find information faster than looking through the bookmarks.
Any system that allows one to access desired information better and faster is going to be quite useful.

In a bid to boost the viability of lithium-based electric car batteries, a team at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory has developed a chemistry that could possibly double an EV’s driving range while cutting its battery cost in half.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
