Watch out Google…here comes Microsoft!

Or so says Jay Baz, a Microsoft developer that’s on the Visual C# IDE team. “So now I have GMail, the Google Toolbar, the Google Deskbar, and the Google Desktop. To search MSDN help, I use google. At home, all my computers use Google as their home page. When I want to browse the web on my phone, I use Google Number Search. See a trend here?…right now Google is kicking our butt”, says Baz. But then he adds, “Watch Microsoft pull all the peices [sic] together & produce a highly-integrated, high-performance, high-value story that is 10x better than Google.” I kind of doubt it, but we’ll see.
They definitely have the money to do it, but do they have the ability/talent/brains? c|net reported that Google keeps stealing a lot of Microsoft’s good talent (the details are kind of buried in that story, but they’re there), so they might have a challenge living up to Baz’s prediction.
