Predictive Search Goes Live On Google

Anyway, this is not really new on the market. Hakia has had some cool features along these lines for a while. Try their CV generator for Bill Gates (for example).
And isn't this very similar to Ask's Edison algo?
But it's good to see Google actually bringing in new - useful - features.

What's "predictive" is that Google is essentially saying they know what you are looking for just by a keyword term. They're predicting your intent which is definitely not an easy thing to do.
Where does the "predictive" part come into it?
Like other have said this isn't really a new concept of merging in Video, Images, Onebox, etc content together on the same search page. It's been tested before. The question is if Google can change the search paradigm for the "65% search users" audience.
