Microsoft, in search of originality
Would the real Windows Live Search please stand up, please stand up? That's the question posed by longtime Microsoft watcher Mary Jo Foley and Seattle Post-Intelligencer reporter Todd Bishop after Microsoft launched two identically named search services. On the one hand, we have Windows Live Search, a Web-based search engine. And on the other, we have Windows Live Search, a desktop software application which searches your PC, corporate network, and the Internet for documents. As for the plight of Microsoft customers trying to make sense of all the company's search offerings, TG Daily's Onion-esque headline put it best: "Microsoft introduces a search tool for all its search tools."
