The Microsoft source hinted that they would display results based on information stored withint the OS and browser. The fact that Microsoft would use Windows in some manner is not shocking. What is also interesting is that it appears their press office is working on overdrive this week. First a senior researcher creates controversy by saying search is short-term and now a source at Redmond is speaking to a UK publication. Are they just trying to upstage Google or are they preparing for something else?

...only so many pages out there to index, and once you've done that, added in a sponsored links feature and so on you're going to end up with something difficult to distinguish from anything else out there...what it does have over its rivals is the operating system used on more than 90 per cent of the world's PCs...
