Yesterday I was at a conference/tradeshow for Online Marketing. I talked about half an hour with the product manager for Austria and Switzerland and told him all of my complaints, my bad experiences and shared my frustration with Overture. He wasn't able to come up with a single concept or a single workaround for my issues. All he told me was that in the near future things will change dramatically. I told him that "near future" for me means "still this year" and he told me that this is not his definition of "near future".
