Like.com

Monday, November 13, 2006
I've been reading a lot of hype about Like.com, the new visual search tool, so I thought I'd put the tool to the test.

I searched for "book" and the top three hits were a paintbook with an image of a typewriter, an Archie comic charm bracelet charm, and a DVD case.

A search for "pregnancy" got me three Sainte Anne prayer medallions.

A search for "toaster" got me two boots and a silver charm.

A search for "coffee" got me three brown shoes.

I get the fact that the search tool looks for creative ways to apply the search term (e.g., "coffee" brown shoes), but this tool seems more odd than useful. I just don't get it.
