It looks like they have investment and marketing power. We can determine this by seeing amount of hype created around its name and superior skills.
True - but they'll need huge amounts of money and time now to overcome this sort of joke/opinion - http://www.theregister.co.../2008/08/01/cuil_apology/
...I'd just like to take a moment to clairify that I was not masturbating in any of the search engine test results mentioned (in my post) above ... and it is/will only be the search engine that I intend to play with...

Thank you

Not impressed either - did some searches on very specific common company names and it didn't find them (in fact most of what it does find seems to be pretty irrelevant).

Well they wanted to present different results to Google - I guess they have acheived that.  embarassed
