I decided to do a simple search on MSN's new search engine and the same search on Google.

It seems MSN Cant get it right. Where as Google came up with the page I had in mind right off the bat.

I look up Apple and Microsuck's frst link is to some obscure page I don't care about and the "Advertising" links on top are confusing.

Google on the other hand gave me Apple [Big Grin]

There's nothing wrong with me, This is how I'm supposed to be.

A woman walked into a cocktail bar, took one look at the drinks menu and asked the barman for a Double Entendré.
So he gave her one

Thing is - would you trust your data (your search habits) with MS?

Shameless plug. (Please forgive me.)

They forgot Teoma in their comparison. But that's ok, since it is most usefull for technical question. Though it still got the Apple search just fine, thank you.

(Why do I find myself advertising Teoma? Maybe because it gave me very relevant results when doing searches for my courses, with its ability to find research papers and other publications.)

When I clicked on your link, I got apple.com/quicktime. Not optimal, but not too bad. What'd you get?

Let them be stupid - the market will sort it out.
