GuruNet launches new search service GuruNet--a reference service that bypasses search engines to yield succinct information on terms in any document--launched a new Web site Monday that it insists will not compete with Google.Published: January 3, 2005, 1:50 PM PST By Paul Festa Staff Writer, CNET News.com GuruNet--a reference service that bypasses search engines to yield succinct information on terms in any document--launched a new Web site Monday that it insists will not compete with Google. GuruNet, a New York-based, publicly traded company with a research and development unit in Jerusalem, gained attention in 1999 for its desktop application that made any word in a document searchable with a single click. Now, after an unsuccessful foray into the enterprise search market, the company has returned to its consumer roots by retiring its subscription service in favor of an ad-supported revenue model and launching Answers.com, a Web site that will allow people to access its information warehouse without downloading the GuruNet application.
The only easy day was yesterday.
