Google Search to introduce public profile cards for all, a convenient replacement for Google+ profiles (Update: Screenshots)

When you search for any celebrity's name on Google, you first see a special card with several of their details.

With better search on iOS, Apple keeps beating Google at its own game

I'm a little angry. No, scratch that, I'm very angry. Whenever Apple introduces improvements to Spotlight on iPhones and iPads, I have vivid PPSSD (post-personal-search stress disorder) and remember the glorious years when we had a decent on-device search solution on Android.
