Haven't seen their 'bot in any logs, so I guess none of those 10 billion indexed documents are mine...

I'd like to see a search box on that home page, and some *validated* html, too.

Well, the more the merrier!

First I heard of them. Did they say when in 2004 they would launch?

I found 1 reference to this / buried in some site I've never heard of before.

Sorry, a splash page with *nothing* on it / and a meaningless "we're taking on Google" message means zip, zero, nada. Unless & until they start spitting out their theories on IR, or what the stuff they have on NLP will beat "spam" better than PageRank, it's not happening, imnho.

(there was another post on this, but it was removed - since this is the 2nd one, I figured I'd explain a bit more clearly..)

Let's stick to engines and not splash pages, eh? Once they got some results, then we can call it a search engine - till then, it's marketing hype & nothing more.

10 Billion? What a Gag. (IMHO)

anyone got a test URL for this? It'd be nice to test this rather than taking dipsies word for it...

add ".com" to the name of their site. It's non existant till next year, and from their jobs page, they only need 1 programmer so apparently, it's still in the "infant" stage & certainly NOT a threat to Gigablast ;) Yuntis, or the up & coming MSN search engine - OR Google.

Till they have an 'engine' for us to tinker with, or a bit better explanation on why they think they're such hot stuff let's leave it there, eh? A whisper campaign is cute, but till they've got an engine, it's only hype.
