Hi guys,

I need a history lesson. As far as I know, AV used to provide results for MSN.

Anyone rembers when they lost it?

TIA

Back in 1998 or 1999 I think. They lost it to Inktomi. In 2000 Ink lost it to Google.

Thanks guys!

Brad, I also get mixed up... Things are changing hands fast these days. Hard to keep up with the pace.
