According to VisitorVille Intelligence , around 66 % of employees inside Microsoft are using Google search engine instead of their own MSN Search. Now that's interesting and does that prove that Microsoft employees are not biased to anyone other than technology? ;)
[During his Consumer Electronics Show (CES) keynote address Wednesday evening, Microsoft chairman and Chief Software Architect outlined the digital entertainment successes his company has logged since the October "Digital Entertainment Anywhere" launch event and highlighted some interesting initiatives that will drive momentum throughout 2005.
