Cuil Shuts Down?

cuil is goneIt appears the one time rising search engine Cuil is offline and not coming back online.

The search engine was released on high hopes to overtake Google. But such an ambitious goal does not come by easily.

Cuil came across to many as overly arrogant immediately claiming they there were better than Google and would soon overtake them… a fool and his search engine are soon parted.

I remember checking them out after the “big” announcement, and maybe visited the site 2 more times since then, but never saw the value.

What are your thoughts on the end of Cuil?
