Yahoo has rolled out a beta for a feature designed to meet an unfilled need in online search: automated note-taking. The new Search Pad feature in Yahoo Search automates note taking through a number of functions, such as saving recently visited links. It does not target the search engine user who's looking for a quick answer and is satisfied with the first or second link returned, said Yahoo's Tom Chi. Rather, it is aimed at people who are researching complex issues -- from a car purchase to a course of medical treatment.

It will help but is not enough
