    Sooooo...is there a limit to these donations? What if someone does thousands of searches from that page?



    It's up to $25,000.

    Also in the new this week was that MS Live Search had failed to make an impact on Google or even Yahoo!  Wonder if this is related?

    Thumbtacks, does it matter? Isn't the result more important than the motivation?

    This sounds like a tax writeoff strategy to me. As if they need help paying income taxes at MS.

    Yes it matters. If I want to give to charity, then I will. I don't need to go through a search engine to do that. It's like saying I need to buy a Marlboro pack of cigarettes and five cents goes to help Jerry's kids. Think of the kids!


    Except that is a very flawed analogy because your not paying anything for this!  In fact, you are getting something out of it yourself (search results).

    And how do you go from cigarettes to search engines??
