Better Than Hunchback
Microsoft's search team is offering to pay people to use their product. We have no objection to that, even if it sounds a wee desperate.
We do not, however, like the word "cashback."
Cash back is TWO words. Did they disable their spell-check? The only "cashback" we know is a pink piggy bank with a slit on his spine. We wouldn't object to being stuffed with money, but it would be so hard to reach back there that it couldn't possibly be worth the special post-surgery wardrobe.
In any case, this is the second time Microsoft has been stingy with the space bar. Remember when MSN was more useful "everyday"? Goodtimes. Forsure.
