WireDoo: “U Can’t Touch This” Search Engine
October 23rd, 2011
I don’t know about you, but Google has been my go-to search engine for the past few years now. It’s definitely one of the best search engines out there, if not the very best (in my opinion). Where else can you find a brand name that’s synonymous to online search? (Does “Can you Google this for me?” and “Just Google it.” sound familiar?)
That hasn’t stopped other search engines from popping up and trying to divert a small percentage of Google’s users to their own sites. The newest one making an entry is WireDoo, a search engine that rapper MC Hammer is looking to develop. Hammer announced the news at the Web 2.0 Summit in San Francisco.
Hammer contends that he isn’t going to make just any regular search engine, but one that’s capable of “deep search.” And what, pray tell, is “deep search?”
Well, Hammer explains the premise behind WireDoo by using an example: when a person searches for a car, he or she isn’t just interested about just a “car,” but will also be looking for more information on car models, specifications, and even zip codes for purchasing vehicles from local dealers.
Technically, it’s nothing new because you can just get your desired results from Google’s contextual search or add a few more keywords in the search bar. WireDoo is currently in its pre-beta testing stage, so you can head on over there if you want to sign up to test it.
