    Search engine out of China

    I read about this search engine out of China that wants to compete with google. It's called accoona. I tried it, and it's not that far off google. I thought it was a pretty good search engine.

    By supporting the competition, Koffee is forcing Google to improve its product, which is benefitting all of us. We all have our own role to play.

    I understand your frustration....sitting at the computer all day is hell and it's horrible on your eyes, neck and right shoulder screwing with the mouse all day

    Well, I tried to use it a few times last night. Uuuugh, it picks up everything close to what the original spelling of your search term is. I was doing an article on lactate threshold, and I got TONS of websites about LACTATING mothers... gross. Why, God... WHY!!!!

    MadMan2k, please clarify. This particular keyboard, ergo keyboards, or ergo keyboards w/ touchpads?

    I've been using an ergo keyboard w/ touchpad for about 8 - 10 years. I hate using a standard keyboard & mouse or trackball. Touchpad has no moving parts and nothing to get dirty. My mouse balls were always getting dirty. Then I'd have to clean them. I hated having dirty balls.

    Ergo keyboards, and touchpads are evil by themselves.

    Ergo keyboards with touchpads are worse. It's just that I'm so used to regular keyboards and regular mice (well, optical, I can't stand ball mice either), that I just don't like them much.
