This is the link to the engine:
Any search engine that puts up 3 pages just to get to the main
page that doesn't offer a search box even though it bills itself
as a search engine is in the wrong game. Two Neomedia guys
and one Ad agency guy and one professor from UofH doing neural
network models.

These guys aren't a search engine compay, they are a information
appliance company.

This doesn't impress me. As a former machine learning person, one researcher
that I worked with used to build Sonar sensing torpedoes that could easily distinguish
between different classes of enemy submarines and easily tell the nuclear boomers
from their not so threatening attack sub cousins and herd them into each other
before splattering the more expensive of the group.
