Amazon Search Engine Drops Some Features

October 03, 2006|From the Associated Press

Amazon.com Inc.'s A9 search engine has dropped some of its most widely touted features, including the ability to remember everything a user has ever searched for and a service that showed detailed, street-level images of major cities.

The Internet retailer removed the functions, along with several others, late Friday. Amazon spokesman Drew Herdener said the company was "shifting its priorities to areas where it can provide the greatest benefit for customers."

Herdener said it was too early to say what Seattle-based Amazon would do with the technology and images.
