Just saw this bit of news over at Neowin
, Amazon's own search engine called A9.com
has opened doors today... it basically takes google results and adds some of their own Alexa+Book Search love, it may be a good alternative for some I guess. Here's a review of A9
from the same blog site that broke the news today about the availability of the service...
[COLOR=#1951B9]Amazon has jumped onto the search engine bandwagon with a new site called A9. It essentially takes google tech and adds another layer. It could prove to spice up an already hot market! Key features include a search memory (needs an Amazon account), and a very neat toolbar. The toolbar has a cool diary feature which allows users to write up notes /comments on a page and then access it at a later date. The news was interestingly released via blogger John Battelle's searchblog.[/COLOR]
