Predicted to be a potential “Google killer” it is a new search engine which is all set to spread its wings on the cyber horizon. It's a new search portal called Blekko - the brainchild of Rich Skrenta, a former AOL man.

Microsoft Puts iPad Users Under Scanner

Top IT companies conduct different kinds of researches in their labs to develop innovative solutions for their global clientele. Apple's iPad being the hottest gadget around, companies all over the world are naturally showing interest in what the users are currently thinking about this wonder gadget.  On top of the list is none other than Microsoft! Recently Microsoft is showing an 'extra' interest on iPad users for obvious reasons!

As reported recently, Apple’s arch rival is calling all iPad owners to make a visit to their Redmond campus in the third week of July, to interact with them and share their 'iPad experience' so far. Even those who think it to be a wastage of time should give it a second thought before dumping the idea.

Microsoft’s User Research Group is trying hard to make this seemingly impossible task of conglomerating iPad users from the world over to speak the “big truth” about their iPad experience in public. A two hour meet has been finalized for the fixture as per latest information from the company.

However, industry insiders are calling this survey to be just another “big show” from Microsoft to woo the huge number of iPad users, a majority of them being teens or youth students who find this gadget ultra stylish. Whatever be the outcome of this “open study session”, one thing is sure, that Microsoft is gung ho on poaching Apple fan boys from iPad fan base in a short time.
