,----[ Quote ]
| Of course, this follows XBLA General Manager Greg Canessa's
| departure a couple weeks back. While having two of the most
| senior Xbox Live Arcade execs jump ship in a two week time 
| span after a particularly long string of subpar Wednesdays
| -- nothing, Ms. Pac-Man, Lumines add-on, nothing, Root Beer
| Tapper, Paperboy, nothing -- might seem to imply certain
| disaster, Ross insisted that he and Greg's decided to
| leave under entirely different circumstances.

Microsoft's Futile Attempt at Search Engines

,----[ Quote ]
| An article in Seattle-Post Intelligencer displays a graph showing the
| growth and number of queries of Google and Microsoft, as well as Yahoo.
| The most apparent conclusion that can be drawn from this picture is
| that Microsoft can not start a battle with Google until it defeats
| Yahoo first. Bill Gates? company trails Yahoo by nearly a billion
| queries. Yahoo has also shown growth over the past couple of years,
| while MSN/Live search has stagnated and floundered under 700 million
| queries.
| Microsoft?s inability to gain a significant market share, despite a
| growth in the market of over 3 billion queries in the past two years,
| just typifies how the company has shown little inability to shoo
| away the gnat that has become a real nuisance in Google.
