"Because in Cyberspace, no one can hear you scream."

(PocketLint.co.uk) The Japanese government will launch its own internet search engine to stop Google and Yahoo dominating in its home market.
According to a government official, the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry will kick off a study group consisting of about 20 Japanese electronics companies and universities on internet search engines.
Japan intends upon launching their version of "YaGoohoogle" in the next three to five years, although by then Google, Yahoo and Microsoft will probably have segregated internet society and carved out the profits for themselves. Japan seems serious about this initiative, and the government is apparently investing 12 billion yen (or approximately 102,600,000 US dollars) into the project. END
