Yahoo! COULD have had instant search 5 years ago


Experimental, Yahoo! live search from 2005
I love the Colin Powell quote at the end of the article above:

"'If it ain't broke, don't fix it' is the slogan of the complacent, the arrogant or the scared. It's an excuse for inaction, a call to non-arms."

May Google continue to take innovative risks!

P.S. Remember how Xerox came up with the GUI, only to gift it to Steve Jobs? (Just do a ctrl+f search for "GUI" or Steve Jobs, to see what I mean.)

It hurts to get complacent!

Xerox COULD have owned the computer GUI
HAHA, Xerox!
