In the beginning of November, I turn my computer on and Leapfish (my homepage) was completely new. It was also much better and in the end I liked it even more. Leapfish had added a great function called real time search where you could see the latest posts, comments, tweets etc. on something you searched. Within a week I had most of my office using Leapfish for search and home pages.

They put out this video which was a cool ad idea and really well put together and really showed all of Leapfish’s features including real-time search:

I was happy enjoying my Leapfish search action, when up popped in my real time news section a video from Google. I watched the video (see link below) and was unimpressed. The biggest difference is that with Leapfish the whole page could be used for real time, not just the real time window.

So, it looks to me that Google may have ripped off Leapfish?

I mean Leapfish was first with real time search a month before Google came out with their video which shows they now have it.
