Hosting vs. Search

Yahoo launched a service the other day to help us search for apps. Twitter has no meaningful or useful search. Facebook search is somehow even less useful than Twitter’s. Google Plus is ruining traditional search. Apple’s attempt at searching for iOS apps (on iOS devices or through iTunes) is a joke. The app marketplace on mobile phones is growing year after year across all platforms. Where is the one search company that was supposed to help us search the world’s information? Off launching its own Bing of the 2010s.
