    Microsoft Eyes Google

    Hardly recent news, MS's crawler was first noticed months ago. Yet still a decent read.

    One thing I know for sure -- this is bad news for LookSmart.

    Incka,

    I don't think they will.

    They will probably get yet another hefty fine, for running a Monopoly type business.

    Oh yeah...

    There is a good example of profiting from a newspaper article. What was it, 100 extra uniques you got from it?

    From 20 to 140 in one day. And it stayed above 100 for the rest of the month.

    They would never do that simply because no one would pay. There are so many other free ones that would rise to the top.
    I run good-tutorials.com.

    It's how I roll.

    Agreed.

    Gates has said the search engine they are developing is going to play an integral roll in "long horn" (the next windows update.) I read somewhere they are going to spend hundreds of millions.

    I think it would be good though. I think Google is too powerful.
