Microsoft Buys Shopping Site Jellyfish

Yesterday, Microsoft announced that it had acquired shopping site Jellyfish, according to WebmasterWorld members.

Is the the beginning of a new Microsoft search engine? After all, Microsoft unveiled some new features on last week. Moderator pageoneresults wonders if that's the case:

With the upcoming change in Live and how commercial results are being served, is Microsoft becoming more of a "Commercial Shopping Portal" as opposed to just a regular search engine?

Skeptics think that maybe Microsoft is just trying to show something new. Personally, I've been an early subscriber to Jellyfish after it was featured in TechCrunch, especially with regards to the Jellyfish Smack feature. It would be nice to see some lower prices and cooler deals out of the acquisition, but I may be holding my breath. ;)

Forum discussion continues at WebmasterWorld.
