Comments on: Bing just shows Microsoft still needs Yahoo http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2009/06/01/bing-just-shows-microsoft-still-needs-yahoo/ Thu, 21 Jul 2016 07:57:19 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Jamison http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2009/06/01/bing-just-shows-microsoft-still-needs-yahoo/#comment-16110 Fri, 05 Jun 2009 17:36:12 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/?p=3786#comment-16110 It would be nice if ANYTHING from Microsoft worked. Needing a Yahoo deal to deliver a reasonably decent product is proof again that Microsoft cant develop any software which works, for any application. Run for cover – bloated Windows 7 is on the way to replace the failed Vista O/S, XBox has to be revamped, now Bing ….. wasn’t their last stable product DOS 5.0 !! Give your head a shake J.R. Harris……

google can never give you better results. because it needs to direct you to shopping-slanted results to make its money.

remember google is just an instrumented marketing company.

if we actually did have a search engine that didn’t headline with eBay or shopping sites when searching for stuff that would be great,

don’t hold your breath. too much money in current search “technology” – good grief.

I am well aware of Windows Search and have used it myself. My point is that Microsoft could be INNOVATING in deskop, document email and Web page search to create truly differentiated products.

I was simply pointing out the trade-offs involved in the antitrust settlement.

Many consumers think their browser Is Google, and will use Bing because “it came with their computer.”
So most of these arguments, while apropos among the techies, will never be seen by someone who is just looking for some porn.
At which Bing does a nice job… .

But competitive restrictions appear to prevent the desktop software giant from doing what it knows best.”

For some reason, Bing is blocked but Google is not.

Search results are good. However, Microsoft should continue improving its efficiency. That’s the core point of ‘Bing’.

This includes news articles, government resources and non-commercial information. It also works well for online research providing top articles for obscure research work.

I find bing to be a valuable research tool that does the job that as a small business, I need it to do.

I think Microsoft has a more serious approach to search and find their products highly efficient and useful.

Most importantly, I TRUST MICROSOFT when I do my obscure research work to not use my DATA in a way to harm my small business.

I DO NOT TRUST GOOGLE with my SEARCH DATA or the DISTRIBUTION of my SEARCH DATA to COMPETITORS.

Because of this, for me, Microsoft has provided a highly useful and trusted alternative to Google and in the CASE of my PATENT research and BRANDING work, Google has proved itself HIGHLY UNTRUSTWORTHY as a SMALL BUSINESS SEARCH PLATFORM. As a SMALL BUSINESS I refuse to use Google as they operate contrary to my interests.

In this regard, Microsoft is a more ‘mature company’ and does not use its search product as PREDITORY on SMALL BUSINESS, Google is highly preditory of emerging technology ideas.

The difference being, Microsoft needs to protect its Reputation by offering TRUSTED TOOLS, Google needs to protect a network effects monopoly by destroying new competing tools before they make it to market.

For this reason alone, BING is my choice for Small Business Online Research.
