Google is a big company, they are not gonna go away. but the number of people trying to get things done are gonna say “Bing! man, thats the way to go.”
Steve Ballmer

Okay, the Yahoo and Google are already in the market. Their search engines are most powerful. Google is the most powerful search engine. You just type something and Google will let you know that there are thousands of related results you are looking for and thousands of related pages are there for you to explore about the topic you just searched, if you want to know all about that. Nobody is going to read all that thousands of pages of whole crap. We just do not read enough. We scan few search results pages, read titles of pages, open few, get our required information and close the browser. Google searches well. Its a giant. A search engine will not distinguish the better information than other among its search results. If there are some results in response from your search term, then search engine gonna throw those results at your face not thinking about which result is better and relevant than the other one to your request.

What’s the Bing then. I doubt that its even a real word. Except that I saw a TV show “Friends” once in which there is a funny character ‘Chandler Bing’ and I searched in the dictionary, it said there is bang, bind, big, bin… but there is no such thing as bing. Anyways…. Microsoft decided anyways to use the word Bing. Bing is the search engine by Microsoft which tries to distinguish results. It tries to give you better results. If you want to buy flights tickets or want to travel from some place to another, it will do some thinking and suggest something exactly related to that, and solution which has worked for other people. Its results are somehow live also.
