>>>The stock market's not reacting to it as far as I can tell as Google is down and Yahoo and eBay are both up. <<<
It's old news. There is nothing there to adjust the stock. Google already took the hit for the $1billion expenditure last quarter.
And most employers DO NOT set the search for google as evidenced by how many sites get much more traffic from MSN during work hours. As far as G being better than MSN search, that is opinion. As I have stated before, for brick and mortar commerce stores with websites MSN results are far cleaner than Googles. In my sectors, websites for small commercial businesses, there is no contest: MSN is far better. Now, for sites built to run adsense..maybe Google is better. Or, maybe they just promotye adsense.
