It's not that I'm complaining, it's all the same to me if everything that happens, happens accidentally (Accidental Man, Marillion)
Somehow I don't think they can beat google.
"But It's Not Google" - that's hilarious! And also very true. Remember when there were lots and lots of search engines to choose from? Remember when Google was just a baby amongst them all? Remember when Google grew up and ate all the other search engines? Scary stuff ... could it happen again?!
Bing?Thats the sound I make whenever I do the "Worlds Smallest Violin's String Snaps" non-sympathy trick.Also, must have been a new intern that brewed the coffee for THAT Creative Brainstorm meeting in Lightbulb Inc. Headquarters.
I'm always a little leary about these "new and improved" puter things. Have enough trouble with Windows automatically updating things that screw up. Guess I'll watch this one for a while. Love your definition of the acronym.
Out googling Google will probably be as successful as beating Microsoft at anything (PS: Google is my best friend)
You Google BING and it's the 1st thing that comes up. You'd think they'd make it a bit harder to get to their competition.
was this cherry picked?
I haven't done any research, but that could well be exactly why it's called BING and not Bing or even Bang. After all, the free software that the Linux operating system is based on is called "GNU"; that stands for "Gnu Not Unix".
It'll probably catch on just like New Coke did. Besides, "Bing Earth" ain't got that ring. If I was going to name a search engine, I'd go with "Whatitis" or "Whatisit."
LOL. it makes me thing of cherries, mr. crosby, and chandler of friends.
Stop teaching me stuff (*wrote the woman for whom this was the first she'd heard of this BING*).I love the breakdown of the acronym!
I read somewhere that google is taking over the world. Just sayin'
I listened to the whole [well most of it] debate on NPR yesterday morning as I was throwing clay around the garage. A lot of it was pretty technical stuff for some with a very small technical brain cell but I have noticed that people are visiting my blog via bing so it was quite a useful explanation......even though I don't think I really understand the 'why'!Cheers
I have only tried it once, but it gave me results entirely unrelated to what I was looking for. I was unimpressed.
It makes me think of the Metropolitan opera. What were they thinking? They should have called it something cool like orb. I need to 'orb' that. Ok, orb that. As opposed to I need to 'bing' that. It sounds like you want to mount it. They didn't ask me apparently.
Hmmm no update. Could it be that you are enjoying holiday time!Cheers
I'm old enough so the only thing I think of when I hear 'Bing' is Mr. Crosby.
I don't trust either one. Google is nosey, and Microsoft is... well, Microsoft. I search with Ixquick. They don't log your IP address or follow you around leaving a cookie trail.
That's VERY clever. And I liked Suldog's comment, too....!
bing! we have a winner. nice acronym.
haha...well, what is life without competition? BING!
The acronym, as Mr. Burns would say: "Excellent."
Dearie, here to say that when we drink wine together, we can get tipsy and argue over who gets Alan Rickman.
