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?

I can't imagine anyone is surprised by this. Microsoft always steals, oops, I mean "embraces and extends" other companies' technologies.

They really are desperate. How anyone with any inkling of computing can respect them.... i don't know.
