Microsoft caught harvesting search results from Google

I love stories like this, especially when a representative from each side find themselves on stage at a conference to argue it out.

Apparently Google was suspicious of search results that were showing up on Bing, so Google deliberately modified search results to introduce bizarre search terms and typos in search results to prove that search results from Google were being fed into results being displayed in Bing. And what so you know, according to Google it’s true.

I guess we shouldn’t be surprised. I’ve said it time and time again, when was the last time Microsoft actually produced anything new and innovative? Even their search results (if you interpret this article literally) are copied from Google…
