Looks like an interesting mashup going on there, clearly, it's selling everything Google.

I had to check it out of course. My search term used was Bing. For images of Bing it returned a link to Hustler Magazine blogs along with a model. That didn't work. But as I stared (at that user interface) I couldn't help but feel like I had been there before. Then it struck me, the UI reminds me of Windows 3.1

My ex's son once announced to a stranger, "I came out of my Mommy's china".

I entered the correct word for the one he mispronounced into WDYL.

...lets just say it does synonyms.

Doesn't load, let alone render, in IE8. It does render in FF 5.0.

clearly, it's selling everything Google

I bet they want to see how far they can push (and perhaps extend) their various Universal channels.
