Citing musical differences, France and Germany have split up and will now both produce a Google-killer: Germany pulls out of euro search engine.
Earlier this week, Hartmut Schauerte, state secretary in the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology, told an auditorium full of high-ranking political officials and chief executives that the government would end its involvement in the Quaero consortium. It will instead focus on a national programme, called Theseus, to develop search technologies for next-generation internet.
Dumb move. kwareeeyo was such a great name. Theseus now, no danger of a typo there, no sirree.
Hope you like our new direction.
