New Microsoft Search Engine

Microsoft have just released a new Search Engine with which they're hoping to challenge Google. Says Yusuf Mehdi, senior vice president of information services at MSN, the division that's working on Windows Live:
``A lot of people think, 'Hey, ... Didn't Google become the popular search engine? And don't they just do a great job? And there's no room for improvement.''' Mehdi said. Once people get a feel for Windows Live Search, Mehdi said, ``They're going to say, 'Holy cow, I had no idea that search could get this much better!'''
Try it out here. Naturally, the first thing to do is to check out your own name. :-)
