|Bing Adds News and Current Trends to Auto-Suggest|
| 7:06 pm on Jan 20, 2010 (gmt 0)|
|...we recently incorporated breaking news and hot trending queries within autosuggest. Updated every 15 minutes, trending queries balance timeliness and relevance to connect you with the most prominent or topical events happening now. |
For example, if you didnít get a chance to watch the Golden Globe Awards, autosuggest helps you get to the latest news and recent winners.

Nice development for Bing, but more important is they're trying to remain top-of-mind with continual releases. Most people have no clue what Bing is, which is frankly amazing considering it's MS.

Nobody knew what Google was either until WE told people about it. Just like I've been doing for Bing.
Tell everyone you know Google is evil and seeking to destroy the world in the name of peace but if they use Bing, it will stop them.
You would be surprised how many people actually believe that when I tell them ;)

Do you mean say stuff like:
Roses are Red...
Violets are Blue...
If You Value Your Privacy Don't Use Google...
Hey, if you're at Microsoft IOW Bing and happen to be reading this, Google went waaaaaay too far for me when they made personalized SERPs default (I don't want behavioral SERPs, thanks to Google for asking) and when Google decided they could insert visitors where ever they feel like on the pages of MY websites...
Please, just don't go there.
Seriously, if Bing would take the gloves off and just run:
Concerned about your privacy using Google?
Try Bing, the first ever Decision Engine...
IMO People would be and would and the impact could be Huge!

Agreed, but MS has always been slow on the draw when it comes to PR. Look at how Apple has beaten them up and rarely if ever do they come back with anything memorable. They need to hit G quick & hard on this privacy issue, but to date, there's no indication they intend to go there (none that I've seen at least). But then again, maybe MS is waiting for Super Bowl Sunday -- that was the moment Apple launched its own full-frontal attack 25 years ago, and people still talk about it.
