Note: catching up on threads from the past week or so.

Good catch of a Yahoo News Article at the SER forums notes that MSN is rattling sabers in its bid to overtake Google Search. The article quotes Neil Holloway, Microsoft president for Europe, Middle East and Africa, as saying that MSN's new search product would overtake Google in the US Market within a very short time period:

"What we're saying is that in six months' time we'll be more relevant in the U.S. market place than Google."
The article goes on to speak about problems "playing fair" that Microsoft has had in the past, and also notes that just because it may be better doesn't mean it will be more popular. MS is also apparently banking on its ability to tie it into other products, felling that Google may be "more isolated." Isn't this a bit what they got into to trouble for last time(s)?

The discussion is getting going at Search Engine Roundtable Forums.
