If I use anything from Microsoft at all these days it’s either because I’m required to for my work or there simply is no other option. They aren’t exactly making smart decisions these days anymore (with the sole exception of at least ousting Balmer).

i.e. Windows 8 should never have existed. It was a useless and horrifyingly obvious money grab. With a company that would perpetuate that, of course bing sucks. Google proved that they were even stealing results directly from google in the past.

Looking at that website, the sheer desperation of microsoft to try to prove anything at all about their poor little bing service in such a way reeks of the reaction of a sad floundering group of talentless hacks, struggling to scream at an indifferent world that they really are “something cool” by accomplishing the marketing equivalent of putting on stunner shades and popping their collars.

In the end, it’s some group of bloated 40 year olds at a club trying to pick up women half their age, all looking woefully out of place and only wishing they had any relevance to the hipster scene that’s been stumbled into. Poor microsoft. They really need to stop doing drugs and grow up like a big company.

Oh? Bing has a new homepage everyday and google doesn’t? And somehow we’ve defined that small useless tweak as “better”?

There there microsoft… it’s time to take your medicine and lie back down, you’ve had a big day what with all your complaining to the other residents and walking aimlessly down the halls making a noise or two. There you good. Good good. Okay, get some rest you’ve got a big operation tomorrow.

Google is the best search engine to this day… but they turned to evil, so I’m using privacy concerned search engines, there are some alternatives…

· DuckDuckGo

  • Pros: open-source, nice UI, good Ideas.
  • Cons: often have poor results, DDG uses Yahoo as main results provider.

· Ixquick:

  • Pros: they have their own search engine & compares their results with other search engines, giving you a rating of it’s own result.
  • Cons: UI is ugly, privative.

· Startpage: (it’s another Search engine from Ixquick)

  • Pros: Offers you GOOGLE results. (acting like a proxy)
  • Cons: Ugly UI, Privative.

I try DDG from time to time to see if they have beter results, but until now I use my Privacy-friendly Google, aka. Startpage.

Note: these search engines are privacy-concerned, they don’t log your IP, they don’t share your data, you can allow cookies or not therefore they have another option from saving your preferences, NSA can’t see what did you search in these pages…

I did a comparison between DDG, Yahoo, and Google web search results, and DDG search results are same with Google’s.

Microsoft needs to improve that shitty bing thing before I use it.. Tried it, really did but I just kept thinking “google this, google that so much better”
