When you add the humanity back into technology, some great things can happen, as Mahalo proves. The results from this new search engine have been compiled by a real person, not a computer program. The site aims to remove the spam, as well as the inaccurate and repetitive results that other engines may provide. It succeeds, but currently, Mahalo provides results for only the top 10,000 national search terms. So while Paris Hilton and stem-cell research will be covered, don’t expect local businesses or the cast of Hangin’ With Mr. Cooper to be anywhere in sight. It’s convenient for someone without the skills or time to get into an in-depth search, but anyone comfortable with Google should probably just stay there until Mahalo expands its coverage. And sorry, Mahalo is porn-free.
