  8. Love the idea, concept, and technology behind TinEye. They claim there are 18 billion images in the index up-to-date, however, I tried a few randomly selected pictures from a couple of website and TinEye did not find them. So despite the success they have, there are still things needing a tweak in the algorithm.
