I came across this print screen of a Google search. Speechless. I usually appreciate Google correcting my spelling when I’m not 100% sure on something,  but this is too much. What? Is Google all of a sudden a stereotype churner rather than a search engine?  Admitedly, this image made me ell oh ell (LOL) a little bit before actually going straight-faced in disgust. Maybe this indicates something about race relations in America, because, according to Google Insights, 100% of the people searching for white people stole my car” were from the United States. Some say it’s a prank….. sigh.

I received an email this evening introducing me to Bing Beta- Microsoft‘s beta version of their new search engine- so I thought I’d check it out.

I find that the name is easy to remember and even though the search results are different from that of Google, it proves to be much better than the old Live Search: bright, well laid out etc.

The image search appears easier to the eye and when you hover over a selected image relevant information comes up such as the image size and the source it’s from.

Because none of the current browsers have Bing as an option on their search fields, you have to actually go to the website in order to use it.

Firefox users can add the search engine as an unofficial add-on, or just by adding it manually as with other browsers.

In the meantime,however, I think I’ll continue to use Google.
