With $33 million in investment capital behind its launch, I never expected the new search engine sensation, Cuil (pronounced “cool”) to show me this on my first use:
Nice. You’d think that a team of PhDs, led by former Google Golden Genius Anna Patterson, would remember to ask, “Hey, shouldn’t we probably buy enough servers to survive a humongous traffic spike, seein’ as how we’ve advertised ourselves as more powerful than Google?” Maybe not. And who am I to judge? Maybe it was bad karma having a roll-out on a Monday.
When I finally did get it to work, the results were interesting — somewhat refreshing and different:
The best part about it – no ads.
It worked for me and I like it, except that I can’t figure out how to make it just bring up “images” like you can do with Google. I do that to find images for my blog posts. Am I missing something or does it not do that?
I don’t think it has an “images” feature, TRO. Not that I could find, anyway. I used this search term and just got a bunch of sites as a result.
Have you discovered this little gem?
Funny, I did a similar search when I tried it. Great minds think alike. Well, almost.
I hadn’t tried the gem you mentioned, but I will give it a whirl.
