Wow. Microsoft is stealing search results from Google

And my favorite web comic ‘Joy of Tech’ has got it covered…

Now let’s get serious…

“Google accused Microsoft of copying search results this morning, and the company’s sticking to its guns: in response to Microsoft’s firm denial — “We do not copy Google’s results” — it’s released another tiny batch of evidence to the contrary and a call for Microsoft to discontinue the practice for good. Mind you, Google search engineer Amit Singhal doesn’t explicitly call out its competitor for “copying” results — rather, “recycling” them through a clever combination of Microsoft Internet Explorer and the Bing Toolbar — but the message is clear. Google wants you to view its search results as the originals, and doesn’t really care how sincere Microsoft’s flattery might be. ” Source: Google responds: Bing recycles search results, and we’d like it to stop — Engadget
