Did Microsoft buy the start.com domain name or did they own it from day one?
It's a nice project, but I don't see it's future if it stays something like this. There is stuff like this around, friends of mine use it local on there pc. Sure it is nice to bring this to a larger public, so my mom/dad can use it, but will they stay using it?
The 'WOW AMAZING' factor is missing, there is nothing inside me that tells me I need to replace google.com for the start.com homepage.
Anyway keep the good work up!
Edit oops: I just noticed the START preview image is a button =) This is better I can add my own feeds.
