Bing nowhere to be found in iPhone OS 4.0

,----[ Quote ]
| Bing is still nowhere to be seen in the 
| iPhone's Safari app, or anywhere else in 
| the preview version of the OS. Besides 
| Google, which remains the default search 
| engine, the only other option remains 
| Yahoo.


Microsoft Name No Match For Google Name in Search War


Is Microsoft Bing losing steam?

,----[ Quote ]
| It was more of a flattening out than a 
| significant decline, Google actually fell 
| even more, and one month does not make a 
| trend. That said it's worth noting that 
| Microsoft's Bing search engine experienced 
| a decrease in market share in the U.S. for 
| the first time in four months in March, 
| according to new data from Experian 
| Hitwise.


Social Media The Right Way 

,----[ Quote ]
| I can understand the excitement when you 
| look at how major retailers and brands are 
| collectively spending billions on their 
| Facebook and Twitter sites. Recently the 
| granddaddy of them all, Microsoft, created 
| 425,000 fans to its Bing page â wait for it 
| â in one day. How did they do it? Easy, 
| they paid for it.
| They offered âvirtualâ currency for the 
| wildly popular FarmVille website. I know, 
| Farmville? Turns out there are 82 million 
| (really) players to tend crops and raise 
| livestock on a virtual farm. 



Is Microsoft Bing Trying To Kill Open Office?

,----[ Quote ]
| Microsoft Bing has many flaws, but this one
| seems to be the most outrageous one. If you
| try to search for OpenOffice on Bing, it will
| not show you the actual OpenOffice.org website
| but will show pages from random websites like
| OpenOffice.com or other non-OpenOffice.org
| websites.
| On the other hand Google search shows
| OpenOffice.org as the first search result.
| Bing has gone to an extent that in fact you
| will not find the OpenOffice website even in
| the 5th page.  So, a Bing surfer will never
| land on OpenOffice.org website.


Why I'll Be Blocking Bing Just Like I Did MS Live.com

,----[ Quote ]
| Webmasters all over the web have been noticing the same trend. Exposure
| Online says, "Microsoft is lying and intentionally screwing up your log
| files," and eKstreme.com says, "Yell if Microsoftâs Live.com Spammed You
| Too - Updated," and even other webmasters decided to block MS' bot before I
| did.
