I'll say 'not' and very odd. I did a search of old article I wrote and it attached random images that were not related to the story. any ideas why that would happen?

I agree. Very slow and the images seem to be unintentionally hilarious (and 80% unrelated to the search result).

I can tell you that this is going to fail right now because the verb does not roll of the tongue as easily as "Google" does.

I "cuiled" myself???

I "cuiled" home remedies for my bladder infection?

No, no, no.

I just cuiled myself and I got scant results. Unacceptable.

Hey let's give it a name nobody will be able to pronounce intuitively, you know, while we're trying to get known and passed around by word of mouth.

"Cuil" in Irish is actually pronounced "kwill". As in, "I just kwilled myself". Awful, awful name.

I think it's funny and fitting that everyone has been beta-testing this thing by Cuiling ... themselves.

PSH! Cuil failed the ultimate test: PORN.
Horrible selection.

Saying a site is too slow the first few days after launch is not a valid criticism as no one really knows how infrastructure will perform until it starts getting hit by real users. That said, the name alone will kill it.
