Next time you’re on a plane and the guy next to you is staring intensively at his iPod, he may not be reviewing his Beck album collection – especially if new search engine Guba has anything to do with it.

According to Reuters

Guba is a subscription-only search engine that culls video files from the Usenet newsgroups, a huge repository of online content — much of it adult, pirated, or both.

Beginning this month, Guba will convert video files from Usenet into the format used by the iPod, known as H.264

“We can kid ourselves, but in the end it’s probably porn that people want,” said Guba Chief Executive Thomas McInerney. He noted that the site offers a “safe mode” to filter out adult content.

Adam Curry will be happy. 😉
