It appears that the more I write about this subject, the less do I actually know. The reason is, it’s still a pretty hushed up topic. Rumours abound that they want to “get rolling” next year (maybe before the Google IPO).
In the end, my page shows up 3rd on googles results for Amazon A9.
The Page itself http://www.a9.com is still unavailable (at this moment).
I am not an authority on the subject, but I like the attention all the same.
I even got a hit from http://www.girafa.com
I am not doing this for the attention of course, I don’t even think Amazon’ is trying to compete directly with Google for that matter. I have some experience with Information Retrieval, which is why I am curious as to “What are they upto?”.
