Microsoft's Live "Academic Search"

What do I do when I am home sick and on hold waiting to a Kaiser advice nurse? I check my RSS feeds of course. According to a critique of Microsoft's Live "Academic Search" is here [Link]. According to Dean Giustini:

First, the overall concept of Microsoft Academic Search is similar to Google Scholar in that "it allows users to search across the Web for articles in academic journals, databases like PubMed and OA repositories" - and eventually it will point to print books and/ or articles available in local libraries.

Is this a great time to be an academic or what? I am really looking forward to trying this tool.
