Blimey! You're quite right. I can see the gross degradation in terms of the
relevance of results, having used A9 several times in the page. Why would
they give up Google? Either Google have something against them (the image
search component suggests otherwise) or somebody paid a decent sum of money
to have things changed.
I suspect the latter is true:

The context for this article: taking aim at Google. They invest a billion or
two in this, I suspect.
