  1. Don’t really use Live Search, but might give it a shot. I’m using Yahoo Go! Anyone else use that?

    I have downloaded the client (I already had it installed), but don’t see the new features – I am running a WM5 device – have the new features been enabled? Am I missing something here?

    WM5 has to install the .Net 2.0 framework
