Microsoft's Web search still young, says Ballmer
Will mature as it grows
Microsoft's CEO, Steve Ballmer, said that his company's Web search technology is still like a toddler in its growth stage and that it will eventually grow up to rival nemesis, Google Inc.
During the Web 2.0 Summit, Ballmer admitted that Microsoft's own Web search technology needed improvements. However, he said the company was three years old and is "playing basketball with a 12-year old."
He said that Microsoft's Web search technology is growing up quickly and getting better every day and has all the potential in world. He further stated that "...it may take you 'til you're 7, 8, 9 or 10, but you're gonna dunk and you're gonna dunk on the other guy some day, Johnny."
