Vista's search to be altered in first service pack, thanks Google

Seems that all it takes to get things done these days is whine and be named Google. A mere nine days after the aforementioned search giant kvetched about the rigidity of Vista's built-in search functionality, the higher-ups in Redmond have apparently caved.

Man, talk about responsive.
