Microsoft’s Valentine kiss from Yahoo!

Yahoo! added a new user feedback system called Suggestion Board.

What’s a little unusual is that the company’s official blog – Yodel Anecdotal — graciously credited Microsoft with the “inspiration.” In a post entitled “It takes two to tango,” Yahoo! Autos senior engineering manager, Michael Olivier, tipped his hat to the MSDN feedback system he saw in the fall of 2005.

It’s probably just good sportsmanship. But I’m sure curious about the relationship between those two companies, which seem a little friendly nowadays.
