Rumor has it there is a new search engine in town that is going to directly compete with Google. CUIL.

I had to go and try it even though I don't see how it will ever survive. When I search for something on the Internet, I always tell people, "I Googled it". "I Cuiled it" just doesn't have the same ring. Before Google I was an altavista fan. I wonder if it still exists. It does!

Here are my results: Two posts below you will see something about Seagate and SATA and nvstor.sys. When I Google something along those lines on Google, my blog comes up first followed by 2 pages of related pages. When I Google this on CUIL, I get an error about the server being busy. When I Google this on AltaVista I get nothing, but suggestions about how to spell.

I like CUIL's ability to customize how the results are displayed, but Google is already one-upping this with their "experimental" version. I don't really know how anyone can compete with Google.

  1. I just tried out Cuil.
    It never heard of me either.

    Therefore, it is doomed.
