Jubii to challenge Yahoo, Google?

Lycos, Early Search Engine, in a U.S. Remake as Jubii - New York Times

According to the New York Times, Lycos Europe is going to use the brand and services of Jubii, its Danish portal subsidiary, as a springboard into the US market - I assume that this beta version of the Web 2.0'ified product is it. Interesting for an "old" Dane like me, I remember Jubii of course from when I lived in Denmark, I was never a user/customer, but it was probably the largest Danish Web product of its time, founded by Martin Thorborg.

The popular meaning of the word "Jubii" in Danish, by the way, is the exclamation of delight someone may utter when something good happens. Or is it "Yahoo"? Ironic - it's almost as if my loyalties are being tested............(Nah....).
