David .vs. Goliath

Too bad Goliath is packing a 120mm Howitzer.

So a new search engine / portal thingie has started up, intent on somehow competing with Google for default browser space. Yeah, whatever. One interesting twist is offering prizes for new mopes who actually sign up. The downside of that, of course, is that geeks and other web junkies have shown over and over again (New York Times, come on down!) that they do not want to sign up for services like this, and will immediately and forever leave and never come back. If you want to read more about their wildly-flawed business model, feel free.

Thanks to noted chocolate freak Sockmonkey for the tip.
