Google’s Schmidt Rips Microsoft’s Bing

Earlier today, Google (NSDQ: GOOG) CFO Patrick Pichette said the company was still analyzing Microsoft’s search-engine revamp—and wasn’t ready to comment.

Well, apparently, Google CEO Eric Schmidt is more than ready. Excerpts from his interview on Fox Business Network:

—“It’s not the first entry for Microsoft (NSDQ: MSFT). They do this about once a year.”

—“We think search is about comprehensiveness, freshness, scale and size for what we do. It’s difficult for them to copy that.”

—“You earn (share). You don’t buy it with ads, you earn it and you earn it customer by customer, search by search, answer by answer.”

Schmidt gave a similar interview to CNN earlier this month, where he pretty much said the same thing about Bing, and mentioned this key point: “They have some advantages with the Windows monopoly, where they can encourage people to use Bing, probably unfairly. Lets see what the users choose.” And also professed his unabashed love for Amazon (NSDQ: AMZN) Kindle, doesn’t say much on a question about YouTube
