Banging Out a New Bing

Last December we ran a story (Bing, Bang, Boom!) that you all helped to write. The whole idea was that we asked what you thought of something and you wrote an entire story based on your, and only your opinions. Turns out you liked Bing quite a bit, though few were ready to give up the Google.

Now Microsoft is prepping a brand new Bing due this spring (which means it could be any day now, but is likely a few months off).

The entire look will apparently be revamped, and there will be more real-time info from sites such as Twitter. There will also be more contextual information, so instead of a bunch of simple results when you query on "baking bread," it will give you sites related to the process of baking rather than random sites about bread.

What do you think of Bing? What is your favorite search engine? Has anyone used Wolfram Alpha? Search your brain and send your top result to [email protected]
