Bing will become the search of choice in the coming year

I'm making a prediction here. It's not based on hard data, although the data is there showing an upward trend. Rather this is going to happen largely as a result of dissatisfaction with Google. The Google brand is not gaining shine, but rather losing it. When you see a trickle to Bing, you're going to see that trickle lead into something much larger.

I also see the search engine integration in mobile devices as another reason. Microsoft Bing will be in tablets and smartphones and the Microsoft platform will be condusive to Bing usage. It will certainly have more exposure.

Whatever the case, all Bing really needs to do is essentially copy the Google skin and that could be one of the few things standing in the way. I think there is growing issues with Google right now and it's getting worse before that gets better. It spells good things for Bing.

I bring this up because for the first time almost ever, I've had to start using Bing as a comparison for search results. I've never had that need in the past.

No sir, sorry to say but it isn't happening.

But it will not make a difference even if they do. We need Bing to stay at what it is, maybe gain 5% but we need new SEs to take share from Google so we have true competition for 3-4 top search engines.

Ah I see. Well I agree to disagree because I see 2 players in the Search business. Perhaps 3 if you include binngle. I could be off on how soon this happens but it's going to happen in my opinion. When you think of brands, trust is a bit part of a brand. If things in Google lands stay as is, I'm sure the negative Panda stories will come out. Noticed perhaps or ignored I don't know. Certainly the statistical data out there supports the theory that Google is declining steadily and Bing is increasing steadily. I see no reason for those trends to slow down. I only see stories that support my theory that it's going to actually speed up.
