Good points, Kaled. I think Microsoft is also realising the importance of all the media attention this story will attract. Whether a deal is ultimately done or not, they are at least attracting column inches and media exposure for Bing. They need to keep these sorts of "managed press leaks" coming regularly to build the pressure up and continue to increase market share.
