Food: Fight

Last couple of days brought us two hi tech food fights...

Interestingly, in both Microsoft is playing the part of an inept baddie who tries to defend himself from the flying spaghetti and meatballs. In one, Yahoo chastises Microsoft for poor coding of the Yahoo Mail access from Windows Mobile 7, which results in unnecessary (and surreptitious) data transfers. In the other, Google is accusing Microsoft of a childlike theft of its (Google's) search results. Apparently, Microsoft is using instant search results form the Internet Explorer Google toolbar and copying them into its own (Microsofts's) search engine (Bing, but not as in Friend's Chandler Bing - although almost equally laughable).

It would seem that Microsoft is finally loosing it.
Which may actually be a good thing...
