Is Bing Self Aware?

Strangely , looking for the word “Bing” in Microsoft’s new search engine,Bing,  gives one the useful hint “Keelbilled toucan in a rainforest in central Mexico”.

I would have thought that is the first thing their QA team would check.  I hear good things on Bing, so this may well be just an anecdote.

Compare that with searching in Bing for “Google”- the result is “Develops Internet search technology.” That makes much more sense:).  Isn’t it Ironic when a search engine does not know what it is doing, but does now what the competition does ?

Doing the opposite ( Searching for “Google” on Google and “Bing” in Google , is also interesting.

Did you know that “Google Enables users to search the Web, Usenet, and images”. “Usenet” ? really ? hos about it BBS🙂 ?
