Are You Copernic Conscious?Written by John Calder

Often overlooked by Internet marketers, software manufacturer Copernic Technologies offers some great tools for market and competition research. The company seems to concentrate on corporate markets, as they're not a household name in same way that "Norton" is, and their products aren't generally available through retail channels.
Copernic recently released their desktop search tool. This product is available now, is free, and creates a searchable index of many documents on your home computer, including email, MS Office documents, text files, PDF, and others. The program runs resident in memory so that in can update its index on fly. You can optionally add a search box to your taskbar. This is first entry in an approaching battle for desktop search. Microsoft has announced that desktop search will be integrated with future releases of Windows. And Google has a desktop search tool in beta, but it's not yet as capable as Copernic search tool is.
