Indeed, and he's talking about a commercial release soon. I know
Microsoft are normally fairly forgiving of people infringing their
trademarks and logos so I'd say he'll have no problems with the
blatently ripped off green X in the corner.
Sarcasm aside though, why would you even need 120 search engines when
Google does just about everything. Where do you display the results
from these? It seems like he's trying to put every multimedia type
application you could ever possibly need into one application. A bad
idea IMHO as I believe that any application should do one thing, and do
it well, rather than a alf arsed job at everything.
I hope it works out well for him anyway as he's obviously put a lot of
effort into it. I wonder will Pheobe arise to the same notorious fame
as the Office paperclip :)
