This week, Microsoft announced it will offering the company's "Live Search" seach engine techonology to automakers and their fellow business partners to be potentially utilized for several automobile features such as GPS.
Similar to Google and Yahoo, Live Search is Microsoft's entry to the plethora of search engine sites across the intertubes. While it functions almost the same as its competitors, Live Search allows users to save search keywords, which updates automatically at Live.com. This should be an interesting feature to use on an in-car navigation system to search for local joints and hotspots, as mentioned by a Microsoft spokesman.
Microsoft Live Search will also be featured on the social-networking site, Facebook. So why haven't we seen this on Xbox Live yet, since the name just begs for it?
