heh, I've never used Bing I don't think. How long's it been around? Certainly seems they have some bugs to work out :thumbsup:

On a slightly related note; Ever mess with Google Trends? Check this out

Comparison between the popularity of Windows, Mac, Jesus, and Porn from 2004 to present. Oddly enough, porn seems to spike around the winter holidays if I'm looking at this right.... More than Jesus, even! Always good for a few chuckles. Its suprising some of the things people search for frequently.

"Bing" has only been around since May of this year. It's the latest incarnation of MSN Search, Live Search, and Windows Live Search.

Bing is really clearing up "Search overload" isn't it?

Microsoft's definition of reduction of 'search overload' sure looks more like selective censorship, to me. :thumbsup:

By the way, I duplicated the results for myself. Just in case anybody has the notion that Andrew's images are 'photo shopped'.

Admittedly I didn't believe this at first, I've never used Bing, but tried it for myself and got basically the same thing except the third link shown is at the top for me.

I guess it is no surprise that it spikes around winter, it's freezing outside so some people have to do something to pass the day by :flowers: :thumbsup:

Bing is hiding those results which put MS in negative image. And then you talk about china? Whats the difference?
Thank God, we have Google :thumbsup:

Yeah but China and many other Countries block a lot more than just negative reviews and other stuff that Microsoft are blocking or hiding, China filters what Western News can be shown amongst many other things that may impact on its Political Interests.

In effect to the Chinese Government 1989 doesn't exist, but anyway thats a different story.
