    He may be onto to something. Reminds me of the simplicity that made apple so good. Let's see if he can market it like apple though.

    The name is kinda crappy as well.

    Don't be so quick to judge. I talk with a slang you probably would never understand. But I bet you would understand those 0000 that I make everyday coding sites and finding exploits. nah sayin ?

    He has his own LLC in Nevada that's been up and running for 3 years now raking in 120k a year. He's one of those gangster nerds.

    Respect to him for getting things done.

    Everyone says Google is unbeatable. They also used to say that the world was flat. Maybe he does not want to beat Google but just take a piece of the pie that they have cooked up. He has a big following and a marketable image. Who knows, if he takes the younger crowd maybe in a decade or so you will see things change. Don't take it lightly as the young crowd are the ones more likely to buy online.

    He may be just the face of this thing but I had someone tell me one time that you don't have to know how to do everything, you just have to surround yourself with people that do. You think Bill Gates or Steve Jobs knew every part of their products? Not a chance.

    People every day have visions that they hire other people to make a reality. The Boeing CEO could not properly seat a rivet on one of the planes.

    You don't necessarily have to have the best product if you have the best image.

    Best of luck to him. I hope he has learned his lesson from back
    when he became bankrupt after squandering his wealth.

    I like the concept of having relative search results, but I am not sure how his algo with match up with Mighty G. It would be nice for someone to give "G" more competition.

    Sounds like a new algorithm or implementation of LSI meets Google's Suggest technology with a
    heavy dose of improvement in the relevance department.

    Should be quite interesting to see how this pans out as far as overall search result relevance is
    concerned, not that it would really take much to improve upon what Google is currently producing.

    There is potential to be great in this market, as I think Google has spent a bit too long either
    resting on their laurels or becoming distracted with non-search ventures.

    Simply controlling all of the emerging technologies as they become popular will NOT produce
    lasting success, but by creating a positive user experience through the combination of a
    minimalistic UI and superior data display capabilities, one has the potential to surpass user
    search expectations for the better.

    Think back to the earlier days of FB, before they began making mined user data available on
    a whim. It was a really fun experience with minimal irrelevant intrusion. Now... not so much,
    as it is quite obvious where their primary concern rests: on profits, and NOT the overall user
    experience.

    This should definitely be interesting. I think it has some concepts that may encourage innovation. I'm looking forward to seeing what happens with it.

    It's one of the "laws" of business, which, when put all of them together, is to make as much money as possible while minimizing costs. Once you dominate a market, and you can no longer acquire any more of that share, you move on to other products.

    Even if you only get 10% of a certain market, if you come out with 10 new things to sell that someone else is already selling, then your revenue could double.

    Every company does this, and you would be fired if you didn't try.
    Microsoft - email, messenger, social networking with windows live
    GE - started out in lighting, then to aircraft turbines, then to your living room
    AT&T - started out with phones, moved to wireless, then to internet and tv
