Two interesting search engine

Two interesting search engines:
- MsDewey.com: This is not a new search engine, rather a new searching interface with a bad taste avatar woman talking to you while the Microsoft Live search engine brought the answers to you.
An interesting concept, though she need more librarianship training, especially the customer services training. A good point is that I heard she asked "Do you want to refine the search?". Wish to hear more of such things when she does her "searching interview". I also would like to see a better display and navigation of the results.

- Google launched some customized search engines at CustomSearchGuide.com. It is the products of Google Co-Op. I tried the health search forms, the "patient's medical illness search" is just so-so. The results are from medicinenet.com, familydoctor.org, webmd.com, emedicinehealth.com, some associations and a whole bunch of UK websites. Surprisingly, the medlineplus.gov and some other government websites are not included here. The other one, the "health professional medical search" are much better, you can refine the search results, with lots of reputable government websites as the first sets of results. The "Vitamin Info" is a good focused search engine, I like it. I would like to see more focused search engines, maybe kids health search; geriatrics health search; nutrition search etc.
