Publicly SeenPage Rank Is A Waste Of Time
Google only has itself to blame for ever letting page rank be public. It should be ditched from being queryable/viewable by users, even via the toolbar. Less time focused on PR by webmasters and more time focused on producing quality content, instead of the obsession they've bred in Today's webmasters, would really help with Google's almost spam[in]dex at times, albeit not as bad as live.com. (Just take a look around forums.digitalpoint.com to see what I mean... so-called webmasters too busy buying/selling links to work on content.) Good, interesting content is what brings a lot of traffic and returning traffic.
M$ is a disgrace. Quality management was obviously non-existant (unsurprisingly) and doesn't appear to have been tested (except by perverts?). While some of this may be funny for the adult audience, it's not for the target audience. Kids might not always be so innocent these days (think foul-mouthed charvers), but M$ should still target to be family-friendly even if it's not "cool". Large companies have a social responsibility which extends broadly. Try meeting it, M$!
