Today TechCrunch reported on the birth of a new search engine: Yuil. Now Yuil is dead.
Yuil (pronounced yule) was a short-lived Yahoo-powered mashup designed to look like Cuil.
Apparently the Yahoo Boss mashup -- something of a search engine Frankenstein monster -- was destroyed by its inventor.
Yuil was designed by Yahoo VP of Platforms, Sam Pullara. Yuil was a brilliant marketing move designed to show off the new Yahoo BOSS API. BOSS gives developers a high level of control over SERPs generated by Yahoo's search engine.
The primary difference between the Yahoo Boss API, and the standard API-based engines is the ability to manipulate and reorder the results.
