I posted that the T-Mobile G1 cupcake (aka 1.5) update was rolling out to G1 owners yesterday, but with no official T-Mobile confirmation and some confusion in the Android space I am no longer certain the update really is rolling out here in the US. Conducting a search on Twitter shows that those receiving the update seem to all be in the UK. There is also lots of confusion around the update since there is definitely a 1.5 update for Android Developer Phone models (unlocked) available right on the HTC site. People either have these ADP models or have already rooted and updated their T-Mobile G1 devices to get the cupcake update so it is difficult to know if people are all talking about the same thing. Can anyone confirm they have received the G1 1.5 cupcake update on a standard, locked, non-rooted T-Mobile G1 in the USA?

What is semantic search?

Semantic search uses the science of meaning in language—instead of just searching keywords, it checks the context of the words to return more relevant results. Brooke Aker, CEO of Expert System USA, predicts that it will usher in the era of Web 3.0.
