Microsoft's Bing uses Google search results

http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2011/02/microsofts-bing-uses-google-search.html

I’ve been bagging Google again recently, but at least they don’t completely rip off the competition. Microsoft has definitely reached a new low.

Update: some more detail, from searchengineland.com:

When Bing launched in 2009, the joke was that Bing stood for either “Because It’s Not Google” or “But It’s Not Google.” Mining Google’s searches makes me wonder if the joke should change to “Bing Is Now Google.”
