Could MSN Search be any WORSE ?!


A simple search...

SO simple a /child/ could do it!

I want to find out if a vanity plate name is available in Washington.

So, in MSN Search, I enter:

washington state vanity plate

There is no result that takes me anywhere near this state's DOL ( Depart
ment of Licensing ).

Thank god for Google!

The second hit with the same search was right on *target*:

Looks like it's available:

"As of Sunday, March 13, 2005 Plate 455H013 may be available for you."

I copied and pasted your search phrase and the dol link is the first
hit on MSN search and as you say the second hit on Google. But wait, I
thought a child could do it...
