Japan Wants Its Own Search Engine

    December 19, 2005

Japan’s government is a little jealous of the money being made by Google and plans to meet with 20 companies to discuss creating a rival search engine.

The companies will include leading electronics firms Matsushita Electric Industrial, Hitachi, NEC and Fujitsu as well as telecom carrier Nippon Telegraph and Telephone and public broadcaster NHK.
