Google and Microsoft have gotten into a little spat and this time it's over their search engines. According to Google, Microsoft's Bing is "recycling" search results from Google through use of Internet Explorer and the Bing Toolbar and putting them up as their own. This is one of the many examples provided on the Official Google Blog:

Amit Singhal, a Google search engineer, stated in the blog that Google inserted the page as the top result of the jumbled search words and found that Bing's search popped the same page afterwards. While Google is not straight up accusing Microsoft of copying results, it's pretty much being said in more polite terms. Google is asking Microsoft to stop, but Microsoft is denying all of this to this point.
