A Search Engine For Geriatrics

Attention all you over-50 types: The folks behind new search engine Cranky.com think they’ve got just what you need to avoid search rage and information overload. The new service, which is really a select directory of 5,000 sites most popular among users 45 and older, simplifies search results by only presenting you four links and specially created annotations, along with ads served by partner Ask.com.

Like many new search services cropping up these days, there’s also a social component, with “member” ratings and reviews.
