    [news=http://www.playfuls.com/scitech/gimages/msns.jpg]In an attempt to catch up with Google's and Yahoo's search services and establish a better competitive position, Microsoft is enhancing its Windows Live portfolio with two more customer-oriented search services: Product Search and Academic Search.

    Similar to Google's Froogle and Yahoo's Shopping service, Microsoft Live Product Search will allow the user to search for various products taking into consideration extra criteria such as category, brand, seller or other specific keywords, also offering a price comparison possibility.

    "It is also rumored that as well as including expert or user-provided buying guides, Product Search will also provide access to discussions on products from articles and blog posts, something Froogle does not yet do," wrote Chris Overd, one of the authors posting on LiveSide blog.

    I'd have thought catching up with the standard Google search would be the priority.

    ASP.NET seems to be popular.

    Seriously, if you don't like the software, just leave it be. It's not as if everyone here has been granted a VLK copy of XP.
