Google intros interactive carousel for searches on the desktop
There's no stopping Google from doing what it wants to do, particularly with improving the overall search experience on the desktop.
Today, the Mountain View-based technology giant took to Google+ to announce that it has added nifty interactive carousels for searches pertaining to bars, restaurants, and top local places.
As seen in the photo, a quick search for the keyword "mexican restaurants in nyc" will display a carousel listing the top mexican restaurants in New York. Additionally, clicking the carousel will reveal more details including reviews, address, maps, and photos.
It's worth noting that the feature is already available on Nexus tablets as well as on the iPad. Google says that it will begin to roll-out the feature in the U.S.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
