Microsoft paying corporations to switch to Windows Live Search. Icky on so many levels. Live Search is not terrible, and there seems to be a lot of active, sensible development on it. If I were queen of Microsoft the first thing I’d do is change the flippin’ name (“Live Search” makes me wonder about “Dead Search” or “Just a Flesh Wound Search” or “I’m Not Dead I’m Getting Better Search”) and the second thing I’d do is concentrate on what Google isn’t doing. Like podcast search. Or fuller integration of RSS feeds. Or a blog search that isn’t spammed out the wazoo.
