That's a Bold Statement Microsoft

To me, Nothing is more entertaining than drama among interweb dweebs. So, imagine my delight when i saw that Microsoft essentially said that they could put a beatdown on Google at the flip of a switch.

Check out my boy Neil Holloway, the Microsoft president for Europe, Middle East and Africa; "What we're saying is that in six months' time we'll be more relevant in the U.S. market place than Google."

Oh snap!

The Neilmiester continued, "Should we add a Google-like search engine but twice as good hard-core into Windows? Guess what. If we did that, I don't think a company called Google would be very happy."

Holloway, I like the cut of your jib.

All kidding aside, Holloway makes a good point. Microsoft has more cash than God and when they put their search engine into the widely used communications tools Windows, Windows Messenger and Hotmail it might be ballgame.
