Some while ago I wrote about jux2, a meta search engine which let you compare results across major engines. It was a neat idea, and the site got some good reviews. But as happens, jux2’s founders’ attention wandered to other projects, and they could no longer keep the service running. One of them, Aaref Hilaly, emailed me yesterday and informed me that he was still getting requests about the service, and he figured that someone might want to run it. Now, if he was really smart, he’d dress it up and try to sell it to Rupert Murdoch, but barring that, he’s offering to the highest bidder on eBay.
Current price: One cent.
“There is no reserve,” Aaref wrote me, “so someone can get a bargain. After all, given the times in which we live, shouldn’t everyone have their own search engine?”
