I just want to share my 2 cents here. I have been in to Microsoft World Wide Partner Conference in LA early this month. The major attraction for all partners (more than 15000 from worldwide) were ability of bing to do convenient hotel price compare and purchase. This was kind of awesome news for many of them. Even it was showcased in keynotes in one of the day the power of bing.[actually, it is not seperate tool, but when we do normal hotel search it offers this add on feature)
Now back to this news, I guess this may be a rush, rush feature released by MBAs running google right now and to ensure they do not lack the feature bing already have and already inspired many partners of Microsoft to lean toward bing.
I may be wrong, but I see as MBA at work at Google who followed all Microsoft activities at their conference at LA.
