Tech News: Google Adds Real Time Search, Mozilla ThunderBird and JooJoo the new CrunchPad Avatar.

Google had added real time search that will show live updates from people on popular sites like Twitter and FriendFeed, as well as headlines from news and blog posts published just seconds before.

“Our real-time search enables you to discover breaking news the moment it’s happening, even if it’s not the popular news of the day, and even if you didn’t know about it beforehand. Of course, none of this would be possible without the support of our new partners that we’re announcing today: Facebook, MySpace, FriendFeed, Jaiku and — along with Twitter, which we announced a few weeks ago” Confirmed Google.[details]

Mozilla Thunderbird 3.0

Mozilla has launched the latest version of Thunderbird, the open source and free email client. The new version adds support for tabbed browsing as well as improved search.

Thunderbird 2 features a new find bar that speeds up searches within displayed messages. Thunderbird also offers quick search, which starts showing search results as soon as you start typing in search terms.[download, via]

JooJoo is the CrunchPad Avatar

Fusion Garage CEO Chandrasekar Rathakrishnan says it will be ready to launch Friday, December 11. Following implosion of the Crunchpad project and on-set of litigation over ownership of the device, Fusion Garage, Singapore has decided to name their creation ‘JooJoo‘ and launch it within a week.

Fusion Garage has pegged the price of the ‘JooJoo’ at USD 499 which is more than double the price confirmed earlier by TechCrunch. The device sports a 12.1-inch touchscreen, Wi-Fi, ebook capability, full HD video, and, according to Chandra Rathakrishnan “the fastest bootup sequence out there.”
