One of the old time desktop search aps.

[mammamediasolutions.com...]

signed a letter of intent ("LOI") whereby Mamma.com would acquire all of the shares of Copernic Technologies for a combination of cash and shares of Mamma.com Inc.

I have a soft spot for both of these companies - and there is some awesome synergy available here combining desktop search and web search.

I love to fire up Copernic for keyword research and competition assessment - gives me a whole different view of things.

tedster - Would you expand on this a bit. I've got to confess that I've never used Copernic, figuring it wasn't relevant to SEO for the major engines.

damn, two quebec products, that didn't quite live up to the expectations.

but now that I think about it, and if Copernic hasn't changed, it could be a good tool for me, as it uses all the major search engines for its results, and even stores these search results I think. Could be a good way to track how pages move in multiple serps with time. Interesting....

anyways, might mamma.com be returning? I think its gonna take them a lot of work to do so

I thought no one had expectations for Mamma. It is a clean metasearch with relevant default results provided by Teoma. I have to admit some confusion as to how Copernic helps Mamma metasearch.
