When you live by the sword, you die by the sword. Right?

Well, Cuil had its PR engine revved to the max, when it launched in 2008. It claimed to be bigger, better, and safer to use than Google.

Fast forward a little over two years and let’s see how things are working out for Cuil, shall we?

Yikes, apparently it can’t even keep the lights on. I mean, if the rumors are true, and Cuil’s still trying to find a buyer to rescue it, then you’d think someone would cough up the $10 needed to host a “We’ll be right back!” page. Apparently not.

So much for the “Google Killer” with a $200 million valuation.

    Why keep the lights on if google doesn’t want to buy them. Isn’t the thought of google buying you out the only reason someone would be crazy enough to try to start a new engine right now?

      No! They were going to crush Google! 😛
