Microsoft.com: Bing – Microsoft today introduced Bing, a new search experience and consumer brand, outlining a new approach to helping customers use search to make better decisions. This “Decision Engine” approach focuses initially on four key user tasks and related areas: making a purchase, planning a trip, researching a health condition or finding a local business.

Seeing as this was named after my rabbit, I’m expecting a royalty check at any moment.

  1. Fact is that Italian-Americans have been using the word for decades… when asked at work what I meant I said, “Oh, bing – whattyamean?”

    Truth be told, Bunny Bing got his name from Bada Bing from The Sopranos.

    Was just poking at the preview site employees get here… it’s pretty freakin’ slick and very polished.

  2. Somehow I don’t think Microsoft had Italian-Americans in mind when it chose the name. “Bing” reminds me of the resulting sound made by a computer (the ones that always had switches and blinking lights) in those old movies after it make a clacky-clack noise crunching out an answer.

    I think Bing should have an exclamation point after it, but Yahoo! beat Microsoft on that one (nice to hear about the Yahoo-Microsoft partnership, though). BING!
