Internet & Networking Chances are that you've already heard of and even visited Bing, Microsoft's new search offering launched earlier in June, replacing the Live search of yesterday. It's new, shiny, and has pretty pictures, but does it really have much effect on the market? There have been those headlines claiming it's "taken a bite out of Google," but, looking at the statistics, it hasn't really affected the search industry at all.

I saw few commercial for Bing and they are desinformation. In ads I saw localised shopping results, animated video previews and many more. In current form Bing offers only "Web" and "Pictures" (no videos) tab, with "More" adding "xRank". None of which is even comparable with Google. If and only if Microsoft implement things shown in ads Bing would start to become interesting. Now its nothing, it's like Google 10 years ago.
