What's better at searching: Google or Dogear? -- Who cares!

View Comments

That's right... who cares if Dogear is better than Google? Sorry Google, but it's true. Dogear has become my primary search engine. But I understand that some people may still be infatuated with Google. That's ok, I won't judge you.

Why? Because you can have both side-by-side! Yup, that's right, since Lotus Connections Dogear is built following the SOA principles you can consume, embed, and use those services from anywhere. And here's the latest example: You can now embed Dogear into Google and have search results side-by-side!

Imagine having the best of both worlds right at your fingertips! Imagine how much faster adoption will happen! Imagine being able to find expertise from Google! Imagine being able to chat with those experts right from Google! Imagine being able to call those experts right from Google! Should I go on?

Can you tell how excited I am? Total work effort? ~3-4 hours with baby interruptions, dinner, and the Vice-Presidential debate last night!. Now, because of the aforementioned baby interruptions, the code is not pretty and I don't want you all to judge me on my bad code design.

Instead, I'm going to delay posting the code (for a little while) and would really like to hear from you. Do you think this is valuable at all? I certainly think so, but maybe I just have Dogearitis.

You want to see a demo? Fine, click here to see a demo in full screen. (sorry, I still haven't been able to figure out how to resize Flash videos recorded with Jing... )
