A search application from Gaviri Technologies Inc., Parsippany, NJ (www.gaviri.com) that runs on any Windows device capable of storing digital data. It provides search interoperability across devices, networks, operating systems and other data sources. Using a "sandbox indexing and searching" technique, the program is installed on only one machine, but lets the user search the Web, all sharable network drives as well as data on Windows Mobile smartphones and local flash drives. SearchOS can be run from a desktop computer, laptop, network drive, U3 flash drive or Ceedo drive, the latter similar to U3 from Ceedo Technologies (www.ceedo.com). See U3. Introduced in 2005, Universal SearchOS provides out-of-the-box data discovery capabilities, search portability and universal file management across all data sources. It also includes image editing facilities, in-place movie viewing and many helpful features to help users manage their data.
