Microsoft's Internet search effort is progressing, Ballmer boasts
But factual figures suggest otherwise:
,----[ Quote ]
| MSN?s search market share dropped from 14 percent to 11 percent
| Google and Yahoo increased their market share in the online search
| arena as Microsoft?s MSN slipped, according to Web research
| firm Nielsen//NetRatings.
The former announcement from Ballmer reached dozens of news sources. If this
is why they call "improvements" and "progress" (the headlines vary), then I
look forward to seeing more of that (negative) progress.
