CRM Playaz Preview - Cuil...Isn't
As me and Paul "The Dean of CRM" Greenberg get ramped up to do our show (The CRM Playaz) he comes on Technology For Business Sake to help me out. We use his appearances as test runs to work things out. Today we recorded a segment for an upcoming show that was way to much fun to wait until that's ready. So here's a 5-minute clip for you to check. We "riff" on the new search engine Cuil. To put it mildly, Cuil, pronounced like cool, isn't really. Just check out the results that came back on a search i did on my name:
Yeah, you're seeing this right. The links are all about me, but look at these pictures. Phillip Michael Thomas? They got a picture of Ricardo "F." Tubbs next to a link about me. NOTE: for all of you under 30, there was a show in the 80s where cops ran around in pastel colored zoot suits, "roughing" people up, called Miami Vice. Just be thankful you weren't around to see this.
Now I know why they have this picture there, because my CRM Essentials co-founder's name is Michael Thomas. With all that said, Ricardo "F." Tubbs??? And it looks like a picture from his days on Miami Vice at that. Honestly, is this guy still with us? If he is he must be in the witness protection program or something, because I haven't seen him since he and Crockett split up.
Besides the pictures, and not one of them are even close, the results are terrible, with most of these links being old. I mean I had forgotten about the stuff Cuil returned on me. And I wasn't alone, as my friend Jeff Brathwaite found out early this morning. Paul. take it away:
Cuil, this really ain't cool. I guess I'll just have to be happy being Google's King of Social CRM!
