one of my co-workers notified me the other day of some odd thing that happened when she searched for our website on Bing (it doesn't load a description of the site). I sent her a nice note thanking her for letting me know because there was no way I'd ever find that out on my own. Then I taught her how to change her default browser to google. Problem solved /csb

I was under the impression that the only reason people use Bing is because it's easier to find porn than on Google.  That could easily explain the doubling of video searches.

Radak: I was under the impression that the only reason people use Bing is because it's easier to find porn than on Google.  That could easily explain the doubling of video searches.


They also use it because Google is, and I quote, "An enemy of free America," and "Google once again is slapping Christians in the face by not representing our holidays. While they will celebrate Muslim holidays and ignore Good Friday in favor of a writer that died decades ago (or was it centuries), bing.com honors the Christian holidays and gives insight into our traditions and faith."

Yes, this is what old people on sites like FreeRepublic think. Even Google is an enemy of America. Remember that. Use Bing if you love America.

Bing video searches are far better than Google's, if you are looking for a certain type of video...

Who searches for porn on Bing or Google? Do you really want them adding those searches to the profile they are building on you?

Meh, I'm not paranoid. What are they going to learn? That I have a thing for skinny chicks that like it up the butt?

DNRTFA:  You know, going from 2 searches to 4 searches is indeed a doubling of the number of searches.

Are you really so naive that you think they can't find out your porn habits whether or not you use their search engine?

That is my default at home. However, video searches are pretty decent on Bing. Image searches, I go to Google.

Pretty much this.

Also, every time I take the Bing Challenge, it locks up and does not show the results.  This is regardless of the browser or operating system I use.

If you're using Yahoo, Siri, WP, W8, IE, Xbox search, some car navs to search, login to most major ISP websites to search you are  defacto using Bing.
Expect a bigger year next year.
/80% of people could care less what search engine they use

I use Bing just for the Bing Bucks. I've received about $50 in amazon cards this year and bought a a few xbox games and DLC for free.

protip: install Bingo extension into Chrome so you can earn Bing Bucks while using Google searching.

That's awesome. I search a lot, so maybe it's time for me to switch defaults.

During the Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference in San Francisco, it was revealed that Bing would become Siri's default search engine in iOS 7, the latest version of the iPhone and iPad maker's mobile operating system.

That came as a surprise to me. It's cool and weird to me to see companies that battle each other in one sector collaborate in another.

Bing is also rumored to help power Microsoft's answer to Siri, which is named Cortana, after an AI character that features heavily in the company's popular Halo video game series.

This is also cool and weird. Is this going to be on phones and tablets? XboxOne? Bing will be Siri's default, and they will build an "answer" to it?

If you have Windows 8, there's the Rewards Assistant app that will run a handful of random searches to net you the max daily points.

Same. Right now I have enough points stashed to get me a few games currently on sale. Seeing as I have to do a shiatton of searching each week for my trivia night I host, the points are a nice little benefit.

So you applied for a job at google yet you aren't smart enough not to be signed into a browser like chrome with your gmail address or to go to your gmail profile and turn off them recording your search history? Not only that but there is a slew of items you can use to look at things under the radar.

The Bing product I really love is Bing Desktop. Seeing what my new, cool Bing image is going to be is a high point in my otherwise uneventful day.

No, actually none of those assumptions are correct. But I did apply using a Gmail address for contact info. I'm guessing Google HR won't really peek inside that account, but I can't be certain.

Not sure why I'm explaining to someone who just wants to assume and paint me as stupid. Welcome to Fark, I guess.
