Ex-Google engineers debut 'Cuil' way to search

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) Anna Patterson's last Internet search engine was so impressive that industry leader Google Inc. bought the technology in 2004 to upgrade its own system.

Re: Ex-Google engineers debut 'Cuil' way to search

I don't think they were prepared for the traffic they're getting today.

Whatever you do, don't mistype and spell it culi.com

Ok, so I obviously had to... lol. That's some nasty stuff. Definitely NSFW. On the other side, I had gone to cuil.com earlier this morning, and I can't help but agree with what others have said. Google has nothing to fear.

Re: Ex-Google engineers debut 'Cuil' way to search

I compared Google to Cuil.com, and this is what I found. I did a search for Redskins forums on Google, and Extremeskins, Hail Redskins, Scout.com's Redskins boards, the Redskins forum on ProSportsDaily, the Warpath, and a bunch of other Washington Redskins forums show up.

I type in Redskins forums on Cuil.com, and I get a bunch of web pages related to southern maryland community forums come up. On top of that I look at the "explore by category" box in the upper right hand corner, and one of the results is Dallas Cowboys Coaches? Seriously? That has nothing to do with Redskins forums.

Fail.
