Yippy! Search... a new kid on the block (sort of)
« on: November 20, 2010, 12:16 AM »
In the FWIW Department...

I spent all day trying to find some information on Google and never found it.  Then I tried a search engine called...

[Click on the graphic.]

And found what I needed the first try!  Guess what was the search that was so difficult...

"Outlook 2010 next unread message"

No kidding, that's all it was and every other iteration I could think of to try.  FYI - I have no affiliation with Yippy.

PS - After a check on the DC search and finding no hits, I copied this from another thread to give it some better visibility.  FYI - this used to be which was a "cluster" oriented search which served me well.

I kinda like thier style...not thier website...but thier style.

Everywhere you look on thier site, there are sly little digs which are aimed (without specifically saying it) at google lol

Search the web from your couch without having to zoom in. Yippy Wii has been carefully designed from the ground up to address the issues we've discovered while browsing web sites with our Wii. Once you've entered your search terms, just click "OK" from the full-screen Wii keyboard and Yippy will process your query immediately without needing an additional click on the "Search" button. Point and click with confidence with large target areas for both search results and clouds!

It also chooses NOT to collect ANY results from Google:
