MSN Search Beta Launches (Again…)

The latest iteration of the MSN Search Service Beta is up, and I’m anxious to give it a try, but all I get for results is: “This site is temporarily unavailable, please check back soon.” Not cool for the morning after a press release. Now I’ll give Microsoft a little slack since it does still say “Beta”. More later when I can get it to work…

Off the top of my head I have this suggestion:

* Brand your search! It seems like Microsoft is trying to drag this new search on the coattails of the MSN brand, but you need a better name if you want people to talk about it. Call it “_______ by MSN” if you must keep the MSN name in there, but if I can’t “verbize” the name of the search, it’s harder to talk about it.
