via Channel 9 by anand.t on Jul 11, 2007So seems Live search just jumped 5% due to some reasons including me using it :P and also some give aways for Americans.
So a 5% increase in market share means an increase in 5 billion market cap.
Comscore also validates it
So live's formula seems simple pay 1 billion to lenovo, give aways worth nothing like vista ultimate and boom 5 billion. This is some crazy money
EDIT: even after removing the live search club it seems that live search is still up.
