"I'm going to f---ing bury that guy, I have done it before, and I will do it
again. I'm going to f---ing kill Google." --Steve Ballmer [as quoted in Sydney Morning Herald]
I also like this one:
âItâs not the first entry for Microsoft, They do this about once a year. From Bingâs perspective,
they have a bunch of new ideas and there are some things that are missing. We think search is about
comprehensiveness, freshness, scale and size for what we do. Itâs difficult for
them to copy that.â
--Google CEO, regarding Bing
Finally, says Microsoft's own zombiepuppet:
"Yahoo will do perfectly fine even if it doesn't strike any type of deal
with Microsoft, Yahoo CEO Carol Bartz said Wednesday."
--IDG News Service (June 2009)
"Bartz says search engine Bing unlikely to make significant mark"
--MarketWatch (June 2009)
~~ Best of wishes
