Bing and the world Bing’s with you, Search and you Google alone…
I must admit I wasn’t a real huge fan of the search results that I got with Live. But I think someone was listening.
We introduced Bing to the world and I have to tell ya, it’s all it’s cracked up to be and more. I love the instant answers part of it. Not just for search but for things like flight schedules and even math equations if you are so inclined.
Bing is so much more than a search engine. It’s an Answer Engine. For example here is some of the stuff you can do with the Instant Answers features:
Find instant answers
Need a quick answer instead of a hundred links to websites that might contain your answer? Use our Instant Answers to get what you need fast.
Instant answers are available in the following categories:
Convert units of measurements for distance, weight, time, volume, and temperature. You can also include mathematical expressions in some conversion questions to get a calculated, converted answer.
To see the conversion answer in action, try some of these examples:
 How many seconds in a day

Find basic mathematical operators, exponents, roots, factorials, modulo, percentages, logarithms, trigonometry functions, and mathematical constants. In the search box, type the equation that you want to solve or the constant that you want to find the value of.
The following examples show some of the calculations and conversions that you can type in the search box.

Calculations: Get answers to arithmetic problems. For example:
 5+3/1(6*2)
 sqrt 9
 sin 100 * 50
 32% of 54

Equation solver: Solve simple algebraic equations. For example:
 4x=19
 2y^2 + 5y + 10 = 40
 Solve 2x + 7 = 4
