Do you think Microsoft sent both Google and Yahoo a standard format and waited to see how they will do their big mistake ?

Jeremy Zawodny emphasizes that Yahoo was not given this template by Microsoft, but came up with it on their own. But of course it's still possible someone (e.g. Microsoft) sent Google this template without Google realizing it's taken from Yahoo... which I think is incredibly unlikely though.

I like more the talk about how Yahoo! copied the ads designs...
After all, Google took the page off... and we didn't hear anything from Yahoo! about that.

Ask, Yahoo and MSN also arguably ripped off Google Maps' design, though I don't expect them to take their Maps offline – but hey, that's good for innovation, let evolution shape these things by copying + random mutation :)

The new page just isn't the same.

Notice (really carefully) if you magnify the page, that the IE uses the same (yahoo) toolbar.
