has aquired Altavista. I find this an interesting development because until now Overture was looking at search engine usage data from a higher vantage across multiple search engines. After this aquisition they will be able to augment this data with actual search data in real time. This seems to be an interesting development. Especially if this type of knowledge can be inferred across competitor networks, namely Google.

Very interesting. I don't know of any other search engine which has access to both these types of data.
