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?

But it doesn't accurately portray how we use opt-in customer data as one of many inputs to help improve our user experience.

Probably because IE informs MS of the most hit pages on any query on any search engine, same as the Google Toolbar does.
