There’s news today about Cuil–pronounced “cool”–a new search engine created by former Google techies. Based on my comparison so far I’m not ready to replace “google that” with “cuil that” in my lexicon. I searched <david randall blog> with both Google and Cuil. Google returned “A Foolish Consistency” as its fourth item–a surprising result, actually. There are many David Randalls out there and I didn’t expect anything close to the top ten. Cuil didn’t list this blog in the top ten and, when I clicked on the additional pages links, I received the message that it found no results for my search. That just ain’t so. I also searched for <PDF creator open source>, to add a PDF printer to this computer I’m using in Maine. Google’s first item was the SourceForge page for PDF Creator, exactly what I’m looking for. Cuil returned one link, to Open Source Licenses by Category, which did not include direct links to any PDF creation programs. Two searches is not statisfically significant data pool and I’ll continue to compare the two. Don’t set off the fireworks yet.
