Knowledge engine is nothing but extracting snippets of information from various websites and presenting them in their own verticals. Thats next level of plagiarism where in eating visitorship of inforich websites and diverting them to their own verticals. Google is known as no. 1 search engine, but its strategy to concentrate on using search visitors to increase own page views and thereby generate revenues would surely lead to its demise. If they think, they can make change in user behavior then they should come out with something remarkable.
Its not easy to force users to adapt new technology and interface. No one can become apple by fudging with others content. And google has history on closing down several replicated projects which never took off the way they wanted them to be.
Replication is ancient. If they want to force users to follow them then better they plan it on original elements.
Its good for them if they remain search engine.
