I have been using more and more of Bing lately because: a) Microsoft c0-sponsor Jason Calacanis’s TWiST show (gotta thank the sponsors, right?) and, B) they’re doing some great, underrated stuff.
Check out this video from TED presented by Blaise Aguera. I know it’s about maps not search but it’s a good barometer of how bleeding edge Microsoft are lately and how they want to stick it to Google.
Take a look at Bing and leave the G thing alone for a week. It’s truly invigorating.
