    MSFT to spend $5B on search

    Agreed, LOOK just don't have the resources to compete with MSFT (or YHOO or GOOG). They have to differentiate themselves to have any chance at all.

    The one trump card however, is distributed search. LOOK's plans for Grub and the eventual full integration with Wisenut (and perhaps other search engines as well) needs to move along swiftly.

    Reading the forums at, it does sound as though they are working on some fairly exciting stuff ... and they really do need to revive Wisenut.

    Time will tell.
