It is a Beta version, maybe working only in some countries.
I got bing.conm here in Italy.
The Algo seems to me more "local".
I am curious about the way bing.com find local results: one factor seems IP location...
Looks like they figured out how to avoid someone stealing their thunder.
I'm thinking it was a brilliant move on their part. G seems to announce things on the same day as other big announcements. Not this time. Well, not yet anyway, the day isn't over with yet.
I'm thinking they're thinking they can get some play at SMX in Seattle.
I like bing. So far so good. Now if they can convince me to uninstall my Google Toolbar and use bing, it may go somewhere. Google is just too ingrained in the fabric of the Internet for any other SE to come knocking at it's door. But you never know, the time appears to be ripe for tugging at search share. There's a lot of negative press concerning G and it continues to escalate.
I wonder if the name selection goes back to the Hanna Barbera days and "Bing Bing Bing, Ricochet Rabbit"? :)

Dont understand why the maps go to Multimap and not to bing.com/maps
Love the video results, nice touch.
Defently live.com results, but wouldn’t be surprised if they’ve tweaked the results by doing automated comparisions with Google results.
AnkitMaheshwari - I’m also seeing the exact same results from different global IP addresses.
Gethan - I'm starting to see a small trickle from 'bing.com / referral' appearing in Analytics.
Netmeg – u egosurfing u!
Would agree that the results look more Yahooish at this point.
Certainly usable, though. Will be interesting to how the marketing department does...
Site "a" has posted a direct link to one of my photos, just a plain old link. Click on it and it would load the image by itself, nothing fancy.
Bing shows my photo but the link takes you to the site "a" page where the direct link to my photo is posted, not directly to my photo.
as for the logo i wouldnt complain : it's an obvious marketing trick, after all it's 100x times better than Google if you really think about it.
google looks good because you've seen millions of times.
but it's crap, and it was called crap by everybody when they launched their site years ago before getting rich.
it's a junk made with times new roman with MSpaint.exe
and now people say it's beatiful.
get a life.
it sucks, and it perfectly represents its own #*$!ty company.
I checked our site and to my amazement, the content that it had scraped was perfect and it had our phone and email address.
Of course will my bad habit of always going to Googelie change to become a Bingster....ummmmm......i doubt it.
I think BING is seriously going to make Google sweat. I can do stuff like USD GBP to get currency rates, get weather reports by typing in "new york weather", get stock quotes etc. Very impressive.
I'm confused -- who are are you calling innovative here? Both Google and Bing do all three of those things.

sooner or later all this will be embedded in windozz
and google will have a hard time to cope with it.
That was Microsoft's strategy for the original MSN, which was integrated with Windows 95. The MSN online service even looked like Windows 95, with Win95 icons and folders. Unfortunately for Microsoft (and for people like me, who were on the MSN payroll), knocking AOL off its perch wasn't as simple as building MSN into the operating system.
