Search the Web from your laptop or handheld -- without an Internet connection of any kind? By Paul McNamara on Sun, 04/09/2006 - 9:30am This seeming impossibility is what a Bellevue, Wash.-based startup called Webaroo has set out to realize -- they call it "search unplugged" -- and even company president Brad Husick concedes that he found the idea "crazy" at first blush. Of course, it wasn't that long ago that a laptop with an 80-gigabyte hard drive seemed crazy, too. But ever-more-monstrous drives are common today and they serve as the foundation upon which Webaroo is basing its free, ad-supported search service. The company and service officially emerge from behind their stealth shield tomorrow armed with a flashy bundling agreement from laptop maker Acer.
