google recommendation widget

As folks like Niall Kennedy and Greg Linden have written, Google has a new recommendation widget that leverages past search behavior to make search result and web page recommendations.  Niall compliments the “Interesting Items for You” module while Greg expresses some serious concerns. 

One thing that struck me was a comment in Linden’s blog, “Geeking with Greg” from Ionut Alex. Chitu who states that the recommendation widget only updates once a week.  If this is true (and I’ll start my testing of it tonight and go for a week), then I agree with Greg — “That’s not good at all.”
