Thanks Joak for the update.

New Search Engine – Cuil

A brand new search engine with magazine tabbed style was launched earlier this week.  According to Anna Patterson, the developer of Cuil, Cuil search 121,617,892,992 web pages and that’s three times as many as Google indexes.  Wow.  If you search “Hong Kong”, you’ll find “Hong Kong Phooey” on the first page of tabs, in fact the fourth tab, hehe, but anything related to this site only shows up on the third page.  Nonetheless, still pretty cool.

Check out Cuil at http://www.cuil.com/.

Oops, forgot to credit my buddy Spike for slipping this one to me.  Owe you one bro.
