Twitter Talking Separately to Microsoft and Google About Big Data-Mining Deals—BoomTown
If this is how they plan to make a crappy search engine (Microsoft's) better, by trusting in Twit'wits, oh boy and I glad that Mage introduced me to Google all those years ago lol.
I've used several search engines over the years, in the end I have no respect for Microsoft's offering (Hotmail has improved, search has not) and some respect for the one over at Ask.com; which I was introduced to when some program (thankfully) changed my default search provider in IE. Since I've never used Yahoo! For searching, I generally skip commenting on them. Microsoft how ever, I used there search engine for many many years, dating all the way back to WebTV—at least Google tries to find what I'm looking for ;).
