Microsoft has never been an innovative company like Apple and others. They are simply a marketing machine.
Pretty much every piece of technology they have ever sold was acquired through mergers, copied from innovators like Apple (Windows) or bought outright going all the way back to MS-DOS.
It will take an innovator to beat G at search IMO. And I just don't see that ever coming from Microsoft.
