Google The web is already aflame with Google's accusation that Bing is stealing its search results. Google created code to manually rank certain bogus search terms, and ten created mock web pages as the top search results for these bogus terms. It turned out that Bing would list the exact same mock web pages as its top search result for these bogus terms. Google is unhappy with it, but in all honesty - since when is it wrong to copy in the computer business?

If "imitation is the sincerest form of flattery," what's this, infatuation? Yes, not infatuation with Google, but with money. Anything to make a buck. Anything whatsoever. If MS had scruples, would they not sell them to the highest bidder ...repeatedly? ;)
