More Bing for the Buck

Bing has two things over MSN Live Search, which it replaces: a cooler name and a slicker interface. Oh, there's a deal to make it the default search engine for Yahoo.

All this is moving the Bing needle up and the Google needle down (albeit by an almost infinitesimal amount). Bing is up nearly 9 percent, and Google is down a whopping 0.1 percent. Once the Yahoo deal kicks in, expect another nice bump for Bing.

What do you like most about Bing, or are you a true Google loyalist? And has anyone tried Wolfram Alpha? Send your results to [email protected]
