I’m sure that being the observant readers that you are you would have noticed that for the past three weeks I’ve only been posting my Friday Funnies posts. Well, if you were one of my list subscribers you would have known that I’ve been busy entertaining some cousins from Italy who were over from Italy. They were actually on their honeymoon and had decided to spend it with their family, which I found to be quite an honor.
Naturally we wanted to show them a good time and I have to admit we found it to be quite a challenge. Luckily my Scenic Adelaide blog was able to provide me with some places to take them too. Even though spending so much time with them was pretty tiring we enjoyed every bit of it as it allowed us to come to know them so much better, something you can’t do from technological advances like Skype or FaceBook.
Even though Google would have to be the #1 search engine out there I’m always happy to know that there are still pioneers out there willing to grab a foothold in the search engine market. I remember way back in May of 2009 when I wrote a post called Are Google’s Day’s Numbered where I introduced my readers to a search engine of a different sort, one that has achieved a PR8 ranking which shows even Google respects it.
A couple of months after that I wrote another post called Search Engines Both New And Old & How They Affect You which featured a video comparing Google and Yahoo with Bing and Wolfram Alpha. Well, almost three years later and I’m happy to report that another search engine has entered the fray. Although the guys behind it refer to it as a web application I’m of the opinion that it can be a lot more than that.
