Focused Search tools - Searching for a better "search"

"Search" is increasingly becoming a favorite; everyone wants to have their own. Recently I stopped by a magazine to read the new search technologies and their founders. Here are some of the excerpts:

silobreaker - Deliver the sort of valuable insights that professional researchers or the simply curious crave.

Hakia - Understands the concept of search queries using sentence analysis, as opposed to the popular Google and others who use keyword based search. This is called Semantic search.

jodange - This is based on what is called as Sentiment analysis, focuses on the opinions and appeals to users in the security and financial service sector.

delver - Aims to deliver more relevant search results by tapping into a user's friends and online social networks.

Iterasi - This is something like a tool to help bookmarking search easier, instead of just saving the link to the content when someone bookmark's, it actually captures the full content and then track and analyze changes over time.

I came to know about the one below from the reader comment:
kartoo - It shows a map with the keywords that link each site. And the size defines "how much" the site matches the result.
