    I've used it a few times before.

    It's basically the same as google and ask.com and all the other search engines.

    So far I havent seen anything different about it.....

    I haven't really used it. I've heard one or two people say they preferred it over Google.

    I saw a Bing commercial last night. I have used it a couple of times and it's seems like a good search engine but I still like Google more.

    Apparently, Bing in Chinese is "disease".

    Oh dear...

    nice, I remember in my Business classes we'd talked about that.... breaking the Social wall and what not.

    how there were odd cases where brand names like "kleenex" mean Fuck You in malaysian or something :hah: And Nova in Mexican means breaks down, lol so obviously the Chevy Nova didnt do so well down there hahhah.

    So far, MS haven't been doing too well when it comes to choosing names that don't mean something else in foreign languages. But I suppose every company can have that problem sometimes.

    So we have Natal meaning "christmas" in Portuguese, Bing meaning "disease" in Chinese, and Xbox 360 meaning "Not a PlayStation 3" in Japanese.

    So. We know what Chandler did after Friends ended.

    Anyways, I have heard a lot of good things, but haven't used it myself.

    Those commercials aren't bad at all. Kudos to their marketing department.

    As for Bing.com itself, I'm not a fan so far. So far when I have searched for stuff I couldn't find what I wanted as quickly as I could in Google.
