    I thought with the launch of Bing.com, Microsoft wouldn't pursue this avenue but apparently I was wrong.

    When will Microsoft understand that it's Microsoft?

    More $ down the drain. :)
    If they need the help of Yahoo! to "confront" Google they have already lost.

    King is such a weak word for what Google really is.

    Bing is the king of advertising. Every website I visit so far has a Bing.com ad, even in the text links! Microsoft is spending really heavily on advertising, it's no wonder Bing search traffic has gone up. Google doesn't need to do anything, Microsoft will never be able to catch up!

    One more thing..Bing is now Binghoo®!

    Scrapping for Desktop search will be next

    With the 2 Giants still fighting it out over Net search; somebody else will slip in and get the real prize. Desktop search. As soon as a individual gets their own digital video, music, pics, text, ... They'll need something better than both these companies are offering.
