What Do You Think Of Bing ?

I thought I would have a look at the much hyped Bing from Microsoft to see if it lived up to the hype .

Pleasantly surprised for example

1. Search for wild mustangs and choose video, the videos are displayed but the great thing about it is that as you run cursor over video it plays part or all of the video , pretty cool

2. Love the daily photography on the home page some fantastic photographs I wish I had taken

3. Checked for Callies Blog and few others including Mrs Mom, Nuz Muzz and Grey horse matters and they all come up in the first few results plus you can see part of the post and shows links to other posts so pretty cool

4. Search Results themselves are not bad few bad sites get in but so do they on Google

5. Think I prefer the Image search results and presentation on Bing to Google

So is it an alternative to Google , YES,
Are the results as good and spam free , nearly
Is it more interesting to use most definatly

Check it out worth looking at and let me know what YOU Think

I've never heard of Bing but will check it out. I'm always behind of such things! Duh! I don't even know how to Twitter!

I did check it out and liked it. That's where I got the video for the last post, it was easy to find and compare with other videos.

We were talking about BING the other day...wondering if it will ever rival or replace Google. We'll see!

I just tried it out. Very cool. It also makes me realize that I have to make my comments count, since searching for yourself pulls up not just your website, but your comments and what other people said about you in their posts and comments.

Talking of image results, do you know what type of horse this is?

I have the canvas print on my wall but someone asked me the other day and I didn't know the breed!

Anon, I took a look at it and it's really hard to tell without seeing the whole of the horse.
