A9.com Search: gadgetopia: A9 has been released. At first glance, it seems to be quite a service. I love how you can type “http://a9.com/searchterm” for the URL — I just came up with that same idea for this site within the last 24 hours. I should sue.

(With a cryptic, secret government program-sounding name like “A9,” I keep having flashbacks to Ben Affleck in “The Sum of All Fears.” I want to call someone on my cell phone and yell, “A9 is in play. I repeat, A9 is in play!”)
