Will be very interesting to see how MSN does with their new PPC platform. I've got a strong feeling that MSN will end up winning the SE war...I know most people don't think I'm right on this, but Microsoft is a company that you underestimate at your peril. They've got the resources, and there's definitely a strong will from the MSN camp to take this market at all costs...
Will be very interesting to see how this plays out over the next couple of years.
