“Fattest Can in The World” __ It’s not that the results are superior, they’re largely what I’d expect from such a query and they’re pretty similar to Google’s results anyway. Same goes for their web search.

The difference is:

  • top right corner there’s 4 little icons, the left-most puts dozens of thumbs on my screen at once which is awesome
  • scroll down for more, no clicking page after page
  • clicking a result doesn’t take you away from the page it just iframes the host page and you move down the image results to view more of them without back-and-forthing

Bing really does feel like a better, more thought out effort than MSN or Live. Whether it beats Google or not they have made a pretty decent search engine.

Bing Doesn’t Suck. I’m serious, don’t laugh.

But over the past 10 years, I’ve slowly transitioned away from almost everything made by the company. It’s not what I set out to do, it just happened because better products came along — products not made by Microsoft.

Steve Ballmer: Linux Bigger Competitor than Apple

f Microsoft’s CEO Steve Ballmer had some interesting things to say yesterday about which companies Microsoft sees as its competitors in the client operating system space. You’d think Apple was their number one competitor – and you’d be wrong. Microsoft sees two other competitors as their primary adversaries. Read The Rest

Give Up Internet‘s Note

“Mac OS” runs only on Macs, Linux runs on everywhere and is gaining traction with Microsoft’ top hardware partners.

Give Up Internet‘s Decision

Ballmer is right.
