Adding to its ever-growing list of Windows Live beta products, Microsoft on Thursday night plans to launch Windows Live Product Search--a search engine aimed specifically at finding items. The company is beginning with an index of 100,000 merchants.
The company also said this week that it plans to bring its Windows Live Search engine out of beta this summer, meaning that Windows Live will replace MSN Search as the company's flagship search engine. At that point, consumers will still be able to reach the search engine via MSN, but will get a Windows Live-branded results page.
