They Stole Site Search! (sort of)

Finally have some good old fashioned surfing time and am catching up on my blog reading and blog posting...

Saw a Lifehacker post about new local brick and mortar search engine Yokel. They provide listings of items in local stores, as well as hours, directions, and other tidbits. Still in beta, but definitely a useful idea.

What struck me were the abilities to search or browse for stores by location, as well as add new stores, all of which are very reminiscent of the old iNetNow "Site Search" database.

(Humorous aside: Remember when Bo got around to adding a state field to the search? I wanted to name the new version "Stite Search" but he wouldn't let me.)
