Microsoft to Buy Powerset for 100M+
Microsoft to buy semantic search engine Powerset for over $100 Million

"Microsoft, the software giant flush with billions of dollars in its warchest, has agreed to buy Silicon Valley semantic search engine Powerset, we’ve learned.

The purchase price is rumored to be slightly more than $100 million. An announcement is expected next month."

I was invited to the beta, found it quite sluggish and not very intuitive or user-friendly. I wonder what possessed MS to purchase it, maybe a result of the yahoo fiasco?
