At the Stanford University on May 6, 2009, Steve Ballmer indicated that both Microsoft and Yahoo are dwarfed by Google in search. And fact is that the Redmond-based company's CEO wasn't far from the truth. The software giant seems to have settled in the third position on the search engine market, although in 2008, it appeared that it was going to move in the number two spot with the acquisition of Yahoo. “We're not just sort of a No.2 or 3 player.
