Stanley Burrell (aka MC Hammer) Discusses WireDoo with Alex Howard.


Former superstar Oakland rapper MC Hammer, who two long decades ago ruled the pop charts with such hits as "U Can't Touch This" and "Too Legit To Quit," unveiled a brand new search engine this week called WireDoo that he hopes will give such popular search engines as Google and Bing a run for their money. Hammer, whose real name is Stanley Burrell and who has dabbled in high tech since his pop star years, announced the new search engine at Wednesdays Web 2.0 Summit in San Francisco when, as in video interview above, he said that unlike the popular Google search engine that WireDoo will offer much more in data when you type in a word or words; offering not just links on the searched item/words but also offering up an array of suggested links to choose from - something he says will be superior to the typical Google searches.

Whether WireDoo, which is still in pre-beta development mode, will take off or fizzle out fast (a la Google + which only earlier this year was being hyped as the new Facebook but never caught on) remains to be seen.
