    google vs. bing

    How do you guys feel about this? Recently google loosend some privacy settings, allowing them to store your data longer. Bing took advantage of this by changing they're privay terms shortening the amount of time they can store your data. I think that was a cool move on bing's part. However, I dislike the fact that many of the search results bing returns for me seem to be entirley irrelevant, and often times relate to windows, coinsidence? I think not...

    So over all which search engine do you prefer?

    I don't think anyone is actually going to vote for Bing.

    Bing is a huge improvement from livesearch, though google is still a lot better (IMO). Google is just simple and has good search results. The only thing bing really has going for it is the cool picture that changes daily.
    Code:
    while true; do echo -n "RiceMonster "; done

    Are there any good jobs at Microsoft that are really going places? They seem to be cutting support for a lot of the cool stuff they were working on, before. That commercial of 'the future' with electric ID cards and tablets probably isn't gonna' come from Microsoft. XD

    And thank goodness, since I'm perfectly fine having a plain ol' plastic drivers license that won't munch on my cash while I'm sleeping.
