I am proud to present to you the latest version of SEEKRadiology, the Radiology search engine merger project. The old dark and scary looking theme has been throw out of the window, and a new, more friendly design has been applied. A couple more search engines has been added, and all this makes up for yet another upgrade of this project.

Check it out for yourself!

Google’s stepbrother: Cuil July 28, 2008

Google has been challenging almost everything lately, such as Wikipedia, SecondLife, MapQuest, and many more, so it has come as a shock for many to see a new rival emerge for Google Search: Cuil. What makes this story even more juicy is the fact that two old Google employees are in on this one. Cuil promises better search results and the company claims that Cuil’s robots (those algorithms that crawl through, and index websites) are able to cover more ground in cyberspace.

If this is all true, I wonder how this is going to change the business strategy of such popular diagnostic imaging search engines as Yottalook. The traditional Yottalook search is a Google custom search wrapped around an algorithm by iVirtuoso. Read more on Yottalook here. If Cuil proves better, will they switch?

In any case, I tried Cuil, and though I do not feel that it covers more ground than Google, I like the whole feel and look of their search results better. Google dug up some 18 million results for “lung cancer” and Cuil found 6,5 million results, but I do not care about the numbers. I prefer finding what I need quicker, and I lean towards Cuil at the moment. Judge for yourself, and then we will see how this duel is going to play out.
