You can't Google this. OK, maybe you can. But MC Hammer doesn't want you to. The venerable rapper, who helped usher hip-hop into the pop mainstream in the early '90s, has rolled out a search engine he hopes will outperform Google, Bing and other established tools.

Senh: Alright, let's take a break from covering Facebook, Google, and Apple. I think the idea is interesting, and iCorrect will get a lot of write-ups, but I don't think it'll succeed. If celebrities want to correct some falsehood from the internet, why don't they just do it on their Twitter account, Facebook page or their official website? They don't have to pay a site $1,000 with no traffic to do it.
