MS – We’ll Pay You to Like Us

As Battelle states, not a bad way to leverage a massive installed base of users for one product to help another product. However, if I were forced to use IE 7 and Live Search, I would be pretty angry. There are reasons why I use FireFox and Google, most notably for ease of use the results they give. I’m guessing this will cause a backlash in the tech world where MS is already falling from grace.
