Jun 5 2009Search The Interwebs With Microsoft Bing


In an attempt to be one of the last tech websites running this announcement (I like turtles), Microsoft has upgraded their search engine (formerly Windows Live Search and MSN Search), and renamed it Bing. As in Bada-Bing, bing cherry, Bing Crosby, Chandler Bing and bing bing, money ain't a thing. Really?

Bing is specifically designed to build on the benefits of today's search engines but begins to move beyond this experience with a new approach to user experience and intuitive tools to help customers make better decisions, focusing initially on four key vertical areas: making a purchase decision, planning a trip, researching a health condition or finding a local business.

Sooooo, Google is still recommended for searching porno?

Microsoft Bing

Thanks to Teh Awex, Anonymouse and Will, who search the web the old fashioned way, with a Sherlock pipe and magnifying glass.

This is soooo cool. It has already replaced Google as my main search engine.

you forgot to say bada bing...zing

It might be functional and all, but that name... seriously...

you forgot Chandler Bing

But It's Not Google :)

Why don't they fix up the stuff they've already made, before they make new stuff? Like IE, what a steaming pile of merde.


@4 he said chandler bing....

@6 I agree completely.... especially vista that's pure crap

I fear change. I will stick with GooGle.

ZUNE!....BING!....Microsoft needs to fire 'the roadrunner ' from its ad team.

fear lates to hate, hate leads to anger, anger leads to suffering!

(and yes, I've been waiting for over three weeks to use that one...)

i get along fine enough without it

Bing is my new home page :)

@12 - No kidding. What are those guys at Microsoft thinking? Sir, we've spent millions and millions of dollars making a search engine (Live) and it sucked. So, we spent millions and millions of dollars more making another one (Bing) and, it turns out, nobody even wanted another damn search engine. I guess we should have maybe done some research before development. Oh well, just increase the profit % on Windows and Office and everything will be just fine.

At least the search suggestions are as funny as google's :

I typed in "what" (I was going to write "what the f$%k is wrong with microsoft")
The first three suggestions were:

"what does name mean"
"what is uv index"
"what does barometer mean"

Google to search for stuff

Xtube to jerk off

Superficial to laugh

thats all I need in life.

Actually I wanted a new search engine. Google has been a little aggravating lately and I'm ready for a new competitor to step up. Bing has a really pleasing asthetic to it, and so far I've enjoyed using it. It hasn't replaced google for me yet, but it's a great option for slimming down search results. I'm interested to see what google comes up with to counter it.

Bing also has faster loading maps it seems. I've started using their maps with great satisfaction. Here's to having options!

An attempt by Microsoft at rebranding ....

Looks like this ancient dinosaur is going the way of GM :(

Come and join the short and easy game mybrute:


The game takes less than 5 minutes to play!

That is Ms. Chanandeler Bong.

@11 I say STOMPY, good show!

He is the chosen one. He will bring balance. Train him.

@20: The most ridiculous, out-of-place line in any Star Wars movie ever:
-Mace Windu (in Ordell Robie accent): "I sense a plot to destroy the Jedi."

Total Photoshop job. You can tell because the shadows are all wrong. :p


This is a complete photoshop job. You can tell its a fake because the shadow's are all wrong.

This is exactly like that scene in the movie Never Back Down where Max went golfing and told his chinese friend its a restricted club so don't let anyone know your jewish.

The boy is dangerous. They all sense it, why can't you?

An old friend has learned the path to immortality. Teach you how to commune with him I will.


Cool shots(Y)
http://efooo.mybrute.com , addictive!!!

You will be a Jedi, I promise.


Microsoft would have PAID YOU for a review.

They should shoot the PR person who wrote that "sentence". Aside from being completely unintelligible it shoots all grammar rules about sentence structure straight to hell.


I'm speechless!

Google search is the best. True that! DOUBLE TRUE!

Is there even more to find with Bing? We just have to try and see.

The "I like turtles" line cracked me up.

its better at porn searches...its like xtube and google made a baby...do a video search for any porn subject..you'll see...you'll see

You were the chosen one! It was said that you would destroy the Sith, not join them. You were to bring balance to the force, not leave it in darkness.

Windows 7... Bing.com ... i think they're on a role


you know its amazing people are still wanting to order new windows pc's with xp on em and refusing visat or waiting to get windows 7, tells ya something huh. fk vista... fk windows 7... fk bing... and fk microsofts "grand ideas" btw im sticking with google. and daisy i checked with a photoshop analyzer, the shadows arent wrong... its you your on the pipe again huh? btw whos been complaining about the language on the site? that was the best part...

my new default search engine, and I used chrome.


Must See!!!



The design of bing looks better then google.

this looks like a reverse engineered google main page done by a 14 year old from nicaragua. switching the spelling or order of the options on the engine doesn't make it less obvious, really.

microsoft did one or two good things decades ago and has let its product (e.g., vista) go to shit. they're gonna focus on xbox. and stealing from googles.


i thought if i got up and made some macaroni and cheese would make this go away. but this post still makes me want to kill myself.

The only good thing about Bing is that it gets around websense here at my work! Thanks Microsoft for all the porn I can now view!!
