Yahoo buys email Search company

Not to be left behind in the Search Engine wars, Yahoo announced that it has bought Stata Labs, maker of Bloomba. Bloomba is a message and text search product. Microsoft, of course, has it's own search tool coming out with the next version of Windows. Google, as reported earlier, has it's own desktop search tool. Other competitors abound, such as Copernic. I can see where these tools have their place in professional circles, but I have to wonder what they offer the average person.
