French President Hypes Up Quaero

The EE Times reports that President Jacques Chirac of France has announced a $2.5 billion injection into the newly launched French Agency for Industrial Innovation (AII). Part of that money will fund Quareo, the oh so super secret search engine that the French and Germans hope will do battle with Google.

As Basil Fawlty would say, “just don’t mention the war”. ;-)
