Just six months after establishing a Silicon Valley spinoff to develop a search product, Amazon.com has launched A9.com, a tool that allows users to scour both the Amazon store and the Web for products and information. Eventually, it will let users search other merchants' sites as well, according to the company. The A9 site, with a stripped-down homepage that bears the familiar Amazon swoosh, began operating in beta form Wednesday, powered by Web search results from Google.

I don't really like it. The colors and the ui still need some work. It's very boring.
Sometime last year, I read A9 was going to be a shopping search engine. What happened? For shopping and prices, I still prefer using shopping sites like Priceflo.com, they are more useful.
