Yahoo works on desktop search

From Reuters:

Yahoo Inc. (YHOO.O: Quote, Profile, Research) Chief Executive Terry Semel said on Monday that the Internet media company is working on a desktop search program that would help people find information stored on their computer hard drives.

Desktop search is the latest battlefield in Yahoo's ongoing rivalry with Web search leader Google Inc. (GOOG.O:
Quote, Profile, Research) and others.

"Yahoo is working on it. In short course, we'll have a desktop solution as well," Semel said at an investment conference in Scottsdale, Arizona which was broadcast over the Internet. He did not say specifically when Yahoo's desktop search program would be released.
