Heard this on the news this AM.
Not impressed.

Hey Microsoft - know why I switched to from Yahoo's to Google's home page?

Yahoo has to be the worst search engine available. Yesterday I wanted to look up a customer's home page to get contact info. On Yahoo the first 5 entries were all yellow pages type sites. The first one on Google was my customer. Go figure.
