Bill Gates: "Today's Search is Nothing"
(Search Engina Watch)

" has just posted a Q&A interview with Bill Gates on a variety of issues including search, web browsers, and why he doesn't have a blog."

"Gates goes on to say, "...our research agenda will allow us to take today's search from ourselves and Google and make what we have today look like a joke."

"Later in the interview he talks about search being a "significant" business (aka "big revenue") for MS and again says that, "today's search is nothing."

"As MS rolls out more in the way of search, we will begin seeing plenty of "traditional" advertising. This is somewhat ironic since Google has been able to build its brand and reputation without having to do any of it."
