Many of you may have heard Bill Gates announcing the new Live Search cashback program or even received the email in your hotmail inbox.  Well, I spent some time chatting with Brad Goldberg from the Live Search team and he talks not only about the new cashback program but about a few other things that Live Search have been working on. 

Here's how Live Search cashback works:

Your results will clearly list the cashback savings you'll receive off the store price, and your final bottom-line price that includes tax and shipping costs. Also look for this icon cashback Icon when you search for a product on Live Search to find great cashback deals.

    It's a great shame that these things aren't available on a wider scale yet, it's nice to see that you're finally making use of that Jellyfish aquisition though- I was wondering what was happening to that and I am very pleased with how well it's been integrated.... kudos to the team.

    Also, love the blatent Google-bashing, clearly your search service is superior for images and video (I use Live search for all my queries) and I imagine you're trying hard to improve the regular web search- I even rumours of a Powerset aquisition in the planning stages. It's a shame you guys aren't doing better in search yet, Google definitely has done a good job on mindshare.

    Keep at it, and for once I won't nag about what you should be doing, it's a very pleasant experience using Live search for me, I am just mourning the loss of Live Academic for the time being.
