Hey i was thinking what does "Bing" stand for? (for those of you who do not know Bing is MS new search engine in replacement of Live Search)
Did MS have some words that Bing is a acronym for or not

So why did we pick Bing as the new brand name? We needed a brand that was as fresh and new as our approach. It needed to be like the product optimized for the Internet. A name that was memorable, short, easy to spell, and that would function well as a URL around the world. We like Bing because it sounds off in our heads when we think about that moment of discovery and decision making when you resolve those important tasks. And frankly, the name needed to clearly communicate that this is something new, to invite you to come back, to re-introduce you to our new and improved service and encourage you to give it a try.

Well, I haven't spent a lot of time analyzing it,

but I don't believe it is Yahoo!, either!

See? All you had to do was Ask and Bing you can say YAHOO!!!! Now I can define Google.
