      Microsoft to launch search engine     

The cancer of the computing world, Microsoft, has announced plans to unveil a mediocre new search engine. It appears to be a carbon copy of Google. See it here: http://search.msn.com

Did I mention it does not have a cache or usenet archive like Google does?

Perhaps more troubling is the fact that a search for "free porn", or any other term deemed adult, will not bring up results.

EDIT: The search technology preview, located here http://techpreview.search.msn.com/ does in fact offer the same cache feature as Google. Which further demonstrates that at it's best, this new search engine will be.....just like Google.

      that sucks...     

do you have to update it every fuckin day? Do you have to activate it and register it before you use it? if you misspell a search, will a little paper clip come up and ask "it looks like you were trying to search for ****, can i help you?". does it include 1.9 gigs of fucking useless help indexes?

Don't you think if I had something intelligent to say, it would bee in my post?

Redundant question: will it seamlessly integrate your MSN passport identity? Will they inform your health insurance provider if you start to develop an interest into cancer? WIll your hotmail account start overflowing with offers from health insurance providers eager to insure you promising full coverage despite pre-existing conditions like HIV and cancer?
