If you’ve been on the web at all in the last few days, you know that Microsoft has announced Bing, the latest version of its search engine. Give it a try!
Here’s a video that really dives into the new search experience. Experiment with different types of searches, including travel planning and shopping. I think you’ll be impressed!
Of course, with any launch of a new product (or version of a product), it gets shoved down your throat. Case in point on the MSN homepage:
There are FOUR references to Bing, without even scrolling:
- In the search bar
- As the featured “Video Highlight”
- In an ad just below “Today’s Picks” in the center column
- In an ad to the far right
Bing! Get it, Bing! Bing! Bing! Bing! Bing! Bing!
