Google Print changes name to Google Book search

Google book search

Recently Google announced in its blog that it has changed the name Google Print to Google Book Search.

Here is a quote from that blog:


"What's in a name? Quite a bit, actually; what you call yourself
says
a lot about what you think you are. And we've been thinking lately
that
Google Print should really be called
Google Book Search.


Why the change? Well, one factor was all the comments we got
about
how excited people were that Google Print would help them print
out their
documents, or web pages they visit -- which of course it
won't.

More important, the change reflects our product's evolution.
When we
launched Google Print, our goal was to make it easier for users
to discover
books. Now that we're starting to achieve that, we think a
more descriptive
name will help clarify what our users can do with it:
namely, search the
full text of books to find ones that interest them
and learn where to buy or
borrow them.

No, we don't think that this new name will change what some
folks
think about this program. But we do believe it will help a lot of
people
understand better what we're doing. We want to make all the
world's books
discoverable and searchable online, and we hope this new
name will help keep
everyone focused on that important goal."
