On some level, you have to love this: A porn search engine. If only it worked. I crashed it on a search for “sex,” tried again, and got 291 results – 291! Don’t even try more sophisticated fare, there are few results to speak of. It’s a great idea, poorly executed, and with a terrible name – Booble – that’s derivative *and* sophomoric. The lawyers over at Google must be sharpening their knives, because the trade dress ripoffs alone warrant a bigfoot letter, if not more. Booble’s put out a press release, lightheartedly claiming they are parodying Google, but they also claim the engine actually works. It’s a directory of sorts – the release claims they’ve added 6000 sites that are vetted by human editors, but …really. Note to Fleshbot: This is a good idea poorly executed – get on this asap!
