    Microsoft Looks At Other Search Engines


    "Microsoft has hired Paul Ryan, a former CTO of pay-per-click search firm Overture Services, to lead its push into search technology.


    The move comes several days after the software giant announced plans to divide its MSN division into two units: one to focus on information products, including its portal and forthcoming search tools; and the other to focus on communication, including its Hotmail and Messenger services. "

    Hmmm maybe MSN severed their ties with LookSmart too quickly!

    Yes acouple of months ago MS said that they were creating their own search engine but that isn't due till 2005. Maybe they are getting lazy. Cant wait to see how many anti-MSN worms and viruses come out when that launches.
