Baidu

Watch out Google! Looks like China has come out with Baidu. The site design closely resembles that of Google but is not the same site. The name Baidu is a combination of two characters "one hundred" and "time" or "frequency". The name comes from a Chinese poem written over 800 years ago during the Song dynasty. The poem is a representation of persistent search for the ideal. Isn't this what Google is trying to do too? Organize the internet. I have to say I like the name better than Google, Baidu too just rolls off the tongue it even has a more poetic feeling to the word compared to Google, which seems to just sound good.
