Tired of Google? Try Ms. Dewey Search

Ms. DeweyLooking for an interactive search engine? Try MsDewey.com – it’s a Windows Live Search engine that has a Flash front-end (yup, it was created by good ‘ol Microsoft). Trust me, go to this search engine and do a search – you’ll enjoy it. 😉

Want to know more? Ms. Dewey is a female actress (Janina Gavankar) who responds to your searches via pre-recorded video segments. She has a couple of different responses for a particular search term – some of which are pretty funny. Here’s a few from the Channel 9 forum that I recommend trying:

  • video (this is the funniest – if you don’t find it funny, do the search a second time)
  • xbox 360
  • colt 45
  • microsoft

Is this the future of search? Nah, just a way to market Windows Live Search.

Give it a try and let me know if you find a good search term!

Btw, pictures of Ms. Dewey’s various responses can be found here.
