Microsoft moving along on copying Google
NYT article here. It basically notes that MSN has a new and Googlesqe search page here. The article says that the new MSN search is pretty nice, but still not as good as Google. Just give them time though, they'll spend as much as it takes to grab some of the multi-billion dollar search industry.
I've written several posts on how Google and Microsoft are going for each other's throats. Google is developing a sort of Google OS, and Microsoft is working to copy all of Google's technology and take over their sector of the market.
