new search engine: cuil

why do startups try to out-do google?

there's a new kid on the block called "cuil" (pronounced 'cool'). they boast that they index more pages than google's search engine. so i checked it out.

i typed in the name of our label 'mistormissus' into google and got page after page of results back. then i typed it into cuil and was told that there are no pages refering to our label on the web.

and when you type 'cuil' into their search engine, it's never heard of itself.

fail. epic fail.
