Bing is an acronym for "But It’s Not Google"

Microsoft Bing search engine

Everyday I used to open my Firefox web browser and go through my save bookmarks of technology sites. Luckily when I went through a page of New York Times, I saw the headlines “Bing, the Imitator, Often Goes Google One Better” By DAVID POGUE, reading from top to bottom of the article I find the suggestion that the author is in favor of Microsoft’s reinvented search engine Bing.

The article is a hit, the proofs is its nine turns of 201 reaction comments by its readers including me. Some readers commented that it was a paid article of Microsoft, that seemingly sense out since the company is willing to invest millions to promote the new search engine.

I have written this article because these lines “Bing is an acronym for But It’s Not Google” keeps on flickering in my mind. Which in my own discretion it entails not an insult to Bing, but to think a positive remark that set it difference from Google. The question is will Bing be able to impress its users to change their home search engine to Bing? Looks like people finds that Google is part of their web browser. And in the long run Google has mastered the way of finding the best answers with just a keyword on its mighty Pandora’s Box then a single click or press of a button.

But search services are constantly in flux. They’re online, so their creators can keep refining them without making you install anything. Bing will keep getting better — but so, inevitably, will Google. If Google doesn’t eventually respond by making its own results more manageable in Bingish ways, I’ll eat my hat.

Furthermore, beyond the basics, Bing is still just a baby. It lacks some of Google’s mature additional services like book searches and Google News (built-it-yourself online newspaper).

People won’t start dumping Google en masse; Google is a habit. Everyone already knows how to work it, and it may be built right into your Web browser. But if you value your time, you should give Bing a fling.

Put another way, even if Bing really did stand for “But it’s not Google,” that is not necessarily an insult.

I believe that Google will still be the number one search engine for me and even for you, but if Bing will introduce new features and advance results and more likely I’ll set it for my homepage.

Does Bing will have an edge over time over Google? Let us see if it will set any difference or advantages, be “But it’s not Google”.

If you have time to read the NYT article you may want to leave some of your thought here just below along the comment line.
