It is COOL – Riya – Like.com

Posted by rexdixon on November 8, 2006

Okay, so sue me right? I went to bed early and missed the big unveiling of Riya’s new like.comLike logo search. I know the shoppers are going to love it, as well as eBay types, and the ones with nothing better to do then to type in “ugly watch”. I do however say that I will have to agree with Scobleizer defending the technology. He is truly right in saying, quoting Scobleizer from the above TechCrunch article comments, ” Would you have bet against Google eight years ago?” unquote.

Technically Speaking, eight years ago most of us were still swearing by altavista!
