To Learn What Bing Is, Do A Google Search

December 31, 2013 at 4:24 pm Leave a comment

It seems that Microsoft’s search engine “Bing” may well be on its way to join “Zune” in their pantheon of failed digital technology, and is nearly as dead as the crooner Mr. Crosby, whom I believe they may have stolen that name from. By the way, did anyone notice that I didn’t include Windows 8 in that “Fail” column above? Well, you can only beat a dead horse so many times before the humor in it goes away.

Possibly on the pipe more than Rob Ford?

If you want more information on what a “Crooner” is, or who Mr. Crosby was, I’d have to recommend you use Google Search, especially if you want the results while you’re still alive. In doing that search it’s likely that you may find that Bing (the alleged search engine) is as popular with the average internet user as Bing (the alleged singer) was with his family.

Adding a little insult to injury, when I typed Bing into my Safari browser, it indicated that Bing was likely a typo, and gave me a large assortment of “did you actually mean?” choices. 

Located on its Stats page, WordPress, the gracious host site for this blog, provides me with a “Referrers” section, with one click on the “Search Engine” button I can see the source of the referral. This panel shows me a breakdown on how people (or since that epic fail that was a Supreme Court decision, perhaps even corporations) may have found their way to my blog, including which search engine they used. Lately in those results far below the top results of Google and Google Image Search, Bing has been locked in a hot competition for the bottom spot with Yahoo Mail, showing up with a choice preference level for information seekers only slightly above that of jumping in the car and driving to the library, if those anachronisms somehow still exist in your area. 

And once you factor in the cost of fuel for that drive, Bing would seem to be at least as attractive to the web going public as any of the new breed of venereal diseases that have been found by the N.I.H.
