I have just searched on Bing for "Analytics"

[bing.com ]

and the first result is very strange.

As expected Google Analytics is returned as the first result. However it is highlighted in a similar way to a sponsored result might be and underneath there is a search box which then allows you to search on Google.

It also appears if you search for "Google".

I have tried searching for "Bing" on Google and they don't return the favour !

Yes, I see the search box for the search term google, and altavista, and yahoo, ask, etc.
I also see the search box when finding a big company, too.

The first result is highlighted with a box.

I only see the search box for Google, not on any of the other searches you mentioned.

For the big company search if you use the Search box how does it perform the search, does it use a search script on their site ?

If so it could be interesting for sites such as WebmasterWorld which have their own sitesearch.
