Ori Alon Made It

In the last year I wrote a lot about QTsaver's competitor, Ori Alon. The news is that Google acquired his text search algorithm. Google confirmed that "Ori Alon works at Google's Mountain View, California offices." Alon's Orion search engine was developed for getting the most relevant textual results.

Now it is hard for me to estimate whether Google "killed" Orion or whether they are going to develop it. I also have no clue about the consequences this acquisition will have on the future of QTSaver which is competing in the same field of relevant textual results.

Anyhow – I congratulate you, Ori Alon. It must be great for you to be acknowledged by the best search engine in the world, better than getting a gold medal.
