MSN Live Search: Little More Than a Baby!

A year or two ago, Microsoft regularly belittled the Google search engine and talked of taking the top spot. Well, reality has set in. Microsoft still talks about taking that spot, but CEO Steve Ballmer admits it may take some time.

Calling Microsoft search "a precocious tot," Ballmer says his engine is a like a 3-year-old, while Google is like a pimply faced, hormone-saturated, pubescent 12-year-old (all right, I added the pimples and hormones). It make take MSN search 'til it's 10 to take over, Ballmer argues. Doesn't that mean that Google will be 19?

Hopefully for Microsoft, Google will totally lose its motivation by the time it makes it to college. What would make you switch? And is there anyone that doesn't prefer Google? Let the Redmond Report readers know by writing me at dbarney@redmondmag.com.
