but we would all be a lot better off, Joe surfer included, if the others could step up their games.
I completely agree, and in regards to MSN at least, their fall is completely their own doing. They initially started out pretty much OK with MSN/LIVE -- not perfect, but with potential -- however in the past few months something has happened and it ain't pretty. The fact that their search is clearly broken is being discussed here and at numerous other boards around the web.
How it is that one of the richest and smartest companies on earth has been unable to develop (for several years now) a superior search service remains, for me, one of life's mysteries. Say what you will about Commander Bill, if he was still running the show in Redmond, this would not stand.
