Cuil Goes Down, And We Hear It’s Down For Good [techcrunch.com]
Cuil, the much maligned search engine that at one time had hopes of toppling Google, has gone offline. And from what we hear from former employees, it’s not just a temporary outage, it may be done for good. Those employees who are still with the company apparently weren’t paid this week, and they’re starting to say they’re looking for new jobs.
-They (the founders) almost deserved it for being greedy. They had a great position at Google with a great pay, yet they wanted to leave Google
Some users on this very forum and others, fell for CUIL and thought it would topple Google. And this was only on day 1! AMAZING.

not forgetting that AWFUL scraped nonsense they come up with earlier this year. Have people wiped that from their memories? Actually, tbf, I wish I had.
Yeah, heard that one before. Only it ran something like this: Altavista and Hotbot and Infoseek are fine....
