I have a lot of angst so I thought I could blow off some steam ranting about some things. There was a posting on Slashdot about Microsoft beta testing their new search engine to supposedly compete with Google and Yahoo. Hands down it was the worst search engine I’ve used in years! To the best of my guess it is not applying any algorithms to optimize the results. I think that this satirical post on Slashdot really did the best job summing it up! It is almost like they used a psedo-random number generator to pull the pages out of it’s database. To be fair I am quite a bit of a Microsoft basher but they should at least try not to make it so easy!
