Start.com - Do No Evil(er)


Not to amp a completely groundless rumor... BUT here's some interesting thoughts on Microsoft's www.start.com beta (baseless_rumor_link). What if Microsoft provided a completely ad-free search platform with billions of indexed pages, with open and accessible APIs for developers to integrate search capabilities to any application, and integrate this ad-free search platform throughout the Vista OS for users to search with from their desktop/mobile application? Hmm. Wouldn't be a bad idea Mr Gates. If Do No Evil really means "give away free products to eliminate competition and gain massive user adoption, while making money on near monopoly control of a single medium based on user mindshare", Microsoft/Start.com could actually end up Doing No Evil(er) on Google...
