I can tell you right now that Bing, the new search engine from Microsoft, is “something of a hit” because it’s been bringing a few folks to this website the past few days. Especially folks from San Francisco City Hall – you can tell when they drop by, as they leave the following footprint:
“www.SFGov.org CCSF San Francisco Department of Telecommunications and Information Services”
And what are they Binging today? Here’s something they’re interested in (it’s Jimbo Lazarus, for some odd reason) below.
Hey, why don’t you go Bing Yourself right now, just type your name and city in to see what the Internet thinks about you? (Actually, your results from Bing will probably look a lot like your results from Google, so why would people want to switch to Bing? Not exactly sure.)
Bing! Fighting Google, One Day At A Time.
Oh, what a second, here’s a good reason to use Bing – you can watch porn without leaving the search engine. You see, Bing “puts porn in motion.” How about that? So, just turn “safe search” off and then use the search term “porn” in the video section. You’ll get these thumbnails that start right up as soon as your mouse hovers over them. Thusly:
Well, I searched for adorable puppies instead, but you get the idea. (NB: Don’t use Bing to look at porn at work.)
As they say:
“But It’s Not Google.”
I’ll stick with the Googleplex mothership for now, but you, you go right ahead and Bing away.
