So Microsoft launched a new engine last week, well, not really - they just redirected MSN Search to Live.com. And now people are asking if this is going to pose a threat to Google...
- MSN Search results are pretty much the same as the Live.com results. - MSN Search didn't truly compete, in fact they lost share. - Changing a sticker on a package, might not do it. - Placing a sticker over someone's eyes may be the trick.
To me, in my techy world, live search is where you get the results as you type in a query, not just another 'enter keyword, hit enter' type search.
What's 'live' about it?
Plus, interestingly, it doesn't actually have a submit button or anything, just a vague magnifying glass thing at the end of the form field.
So I personally await the release of Vista to see how restricting that sticker is...
