Ask's Binoculars Show Poor Representation

Conducting a search at Ask Jeeves on Web design some of the results returned have the new Binoculars(TM) Site Preview Tool feature. Of course you need to be a on a PC running Internet Explorer to see them.

So I switched over to my PC and took a look.

I saved and published this screen capture at the highest JPG resolution available, it looks identical to how I saw it on the screen. Besides for the understandably poor quality of the thumbnail, the title (contextual yellow box) hovers over the top portion of the screen thumbnail. This covers up a relatively large portion of the thumbnail. This disturbs me a little, can't they just remove the "title=Binoculars Site Preview" from the tag?
