    I don't really see the big deal about this atm, but I suppose once more screenshots and the product itself become available, I can be a better judge :)

    I don't think it's fully launched. If I login, I don't see anything at all. Maybe we weren't supposed to see it yet. :D

    Looks like it could be very useful. It adds a new item to your browser's context menu (IE and Fx), so you can select something on a web page and add it to a notebook. Basically, an elegant way to aggregate related bits and pieces of information from various sources. Would be really handy if you needed to research a particular topic and collect information for a paper, for example.

    Are you referring to del.icio.us which Y! acquired not too long ago?

    del.icio.us is a social bookmarking service. Basically, you can collect and share interesting links, and tag them etc. but I don't think it allows you to capture snippets of information from various different sources and aggregate them together.

    Hmm...that looks a lot like del.icio.us too.

    As I said, it doesn't look like you can pick bits and pieces of info from various different sites and combine them into a single collection (which Google calls a notebook).

    Wonder if Y! is planning to combine del.icio.us and MyWeb into one sometime in the future.
