Microsoft recently launched their new search engine “Bing,” in an attempt to compete in the arena that Google has pretty much already won. There was a bit of talk leading up to the relatively quiet launch, which promptly disappointed me.
I had been hoping that Microsoft would help create some more competition in the search space, but it doesn’t look like anything has changed.
The design looks virtually the same as the old Live Search (Live.com now redirects to Bing) and the results seem pretty much the same.
It seems like Microsoft just bought a new domain, made a new logo, and drummed-up some publicity. I can’t necessarily know that for a fact, but it seems to be the case to me.
