    "Microsoft: Google likely to face questions on ads"

    Why is it then that when installing IE8 you are not presented with a
    list of search engines to choose from rather than having 'Hobson's
    choice' in the form of Bing (MS's search engine). I know you can
    change it, but MS does not make it particularly easy.

    Similarly Microsoft can also be questioned on its Windows / Office
    monopoly.

    Very much pot calling kettle black.

    Google and I for a kick-off. I care because I had to spend time
    figuring out haw to change 'Bing' to 'Google' in the right hand box on
    IE8.

    Wrong answer equals to a blank answer or not?
