Yahoo, not willing to stand idle which their newest competitor, Cuil, got savaged by negative press in its first week, have used the occasion to promote their new search API with Yuil – a search engine that, frankly, does a much better job.
Created by Yahoo’s VP of Platforms, Sam Pullara, Yuil used Yahoo’s new BOSS API which allows developers to create custom, highly configurable, Yahoo-powered search engines.
Not willing to indulge in too much schadenfreude, Yahoo have taken down the site and redirected it to Sam’s blog.
Touché, Yahoo. Touché.
